To John William Lubbock 2 April 1
Dear Sir John Lubbock
I am glad to hear for your sake & pro bono publico that the water rises so quickly in your well.—
We have no means of judging accurately, but as far as my servants can judge, the water has risen 12 inches in last fortnight.—
We draw very little, only about one great Bucket per day; but we must now commence drawing 3 or 4, as our Tanks are getting low, & this would disarrange any further observation on rise of water.
Yours very sincerely | C. Darwin
