To Josiah Wedgwood III [May 1844]1
Emma tells me that you have or will have next week 600 or 700£ to pay over.— My Father has kindly offered to take 600£ more from me, would you therefore please to send this money if now ready, with some which you have to send from Aunt Sarah.;2 if not now ready, will you send it whenever it is ready.— If the sum is more than 600£, would you please to keep the difference till some future time.— My Father requests that you will be so kind, as to send him a copy of the same sort of receipt, which you had for the 1400£, & he will return it to you properly signed.— I forget, whether you require any document from Emma: if you do, wd you please to send us the form, & I will keep a copy of it, so that we need not trouble you again, as I utterly forget the sort of document, you formerly required about the Railway Shares.—3
Yours affectionately | C. Darwin
