To John Higgins 18 March 
Down Farnborough Kent
My dear Sir
As this note requires no sort of answer, I send it to say that on considering “ways & means”, I shd. be sorry to hear of a Farm at above, fifteen-thousand pounds; & one, like my present one, at 12, or 13, or 14 thousand would suit me very well.—
The money from Ld. Powis1 will, I hear, be paid up on 1st of July; but it can very well lie a little in the Bank until you can hear of something which you can recommend.—
My dear Sir | Your’s very faithfully | C. Darwin J. Higgins Esqe
