To John Higgins 25 May 
Down Farnborough Kent
My dear Sir
I beg to acknowledge & thank you for your note of the 22d enclosing your account & informing me that £197. 12. is placed to my account at Mr Robarts, Curtis & Co.1
I am much obliged by your wish to see me at Alford this summer.—2 I shd like it much, but I fear other will hardly render it possible.
Dear Sir | Yours faithfully | C. Darwin J. Higgins. Esqre
Cannot visit Alford [farm] this summer.
