To T. H. Huxley 9 April 1
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Huxley
We are very glad that Mrs Huxley & yourself will come to us on the 26th —
I am heartily sorry at so poor an account of your health.
I will tell you a pleasanter way for Mrs Huxley to come, viz by Croydon & Epsom line from London Bridge to Sydenham Station, where my phaeton shall be & bring you here, 9–10 miles,— I will send to meet Train which leaves London at 3o 15’, supposing that you would wish to have best part of day in London; but if you like to come earlier, so much the better, & fix earlier Train.—
We dine at 7. & shall perhaps have few visitors besides those in House.—2
Very many thanks for your card, which I fear I shall not take advantage of, as the Lecture of 22d was what I most wanted to hear: but I shd be very glad to hear any lecture, having heard of your lecturing powers.—3
Your’s Ever C. Darwin
