To W. B. Tegetmeier 4 June 1
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Sir
The Rabbit arrived safely & I thank you heartily for all the trouble which you have so kindly taken for me.2
I send a P.O. (payable to William B. Tegetmeier) for 1£, as I thought it would be best to send even sum, & you can keep, if you kindly will, the few shillings in advance.3 Then you will have to pay a Porter to bring the Birds to me on Saturday morning the 21st of June.—4
With my repeated thanks. | In Haste | Yours very sincerely | Ch. Darwin
