Dear Sir

I am sorry to say that I can be of no assistance to you.— Any remarks which I might make on your letter would as far as they had any influence, add to your doubts on subjects which you consider sacred.

In my opinion every man ought to weigh for himself impartially & anxiously all the arguments for & against any revelation ever having been made to man.—

Dear Sir | Yours faithfully | Ch. Darwin
