To John Scott 8 January 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
I am obliged for your two notes2 & am glad to hear that your paper went off successfully without bitter opposition.—3 I am hardly ever able to go out anywhere.— Pray excuse brevity, as I am far from well today & overwhelmed with things which must be done.4
Dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin
Glad correspondent’s paper went well.
Poor health and much work forces CD to be brief.
