Down, | Beckenham, Kent.

Jan 3. 74

Dear Sir,

I can of course have no objection, if the committee think fit, for my name to appear as an honorary member; but as I do not pay any subscription, it ought not appear as an ordinary member, in as much as this would imply that I knew something of the affairs of the Club.1

I have the honour to remain | Dear Sir | Yours faithfully & obliged

Ch. Darwin
