To ? [15 or 22 October 1848]1
My dear Sir
I write a single line to say that your note & enclosure have forwarded to me, here. & that I have written to Mr Landsborough2 today to tell him the dried specimen was just what I wanted if he could procure me some more in spirits. I have been & am very unwell, so will write no more, except to thank you much for all your kindness.
Believe me | Yours very truly & obliged | C. Darwin
Thanks for note and enclosure. Has written to [David?] Landsborough to say dried specimen was just what he wanted. Would like some more in spirits.
