To John William Lubbock 28 [June 1856 – January 1865?]1
Dear Sir John Lubbock
I am very much obliged for your invitation to dinner on the 30th & I shd. have very much liked to have come, but my health has been so indifferent of late that I have resolved not to dine out for the next few weeks or months till I get better.—
With many thanks for your kindness, I am, dear Sir John Lubbock | Your’s truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
Regrets he cannot accept dinner invitation.
