Footnotes

1
The correspondent is conjectured to be Jones on the basis of his visit to CD in London on 23 April 1866 (see letter to H. B. Jones, [23 April 1866?]). The date of 13 April is given in the sale catalogue. The year is established by the dates of CD’s visit to London in 1866 (see n. 2, below). No records have been found of an April visit to London that was delayed in any other year.
2
CD visited London from 21 April to 1 May 1866 (Emma Darwin’s diary (DAR 242). He had planned to go to London on 11 April, but had to postpone his visit because of poor health (see letter to J. D. Hooker, [5 April 1866], and letter from E. A. Darwin, 10 April [1866]).

Summary

CD’s plans have changed. He will be in London the following week and therefore able to call on correspondent.
