My dear Henslow

It has just occurred to me that possibly you might be able to dine with me at my Brothers “57 Queen Anne St. Cavendish Sqe” on either 7th or 8th of August, at 7 oclock or any other hour.— You can answer me whenever you like, & can see your way. I will try & get Hooker to come & dine there also. I shd. like to know a few days before to let my Brothers Cook know.— If you can, do say yes.— It is a capital central situation.—

Ever your’s | C. Darwin
