To Charles Lovegrove 9 July [1861?]1
My dear Sir
I thank you sincerely for the trouble which you have so kindly taken for me.—2 I am sorry not to have the pedigree of your pretty pony: but the information sent will be very useful to me, more especially as it confirms what I heard from Norway, and did not know whether fully to believe.—3
With my best thanks, Believe me My dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | Charles Darwin
Regrets he does not have pedigree of CL’s "pretty pony", but assures him information was very useful, "more especially as it confirms what I heard from Norway & did not know whether fully to believe".
