To T. H. Huxley 4 January 1
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Huxley
I congratulate you heartily on Mrs. Huxley’s troubles being over.—2 It is a horrid affair at the best of times; & I fear a repitition will not make you feel younger.—
The Balanus is positively B. balanoides, & you may positively state that the surface to which it adhered was not beneath level of lowest tide3
I will bring specimen when next I come to London.—
Ever yours | C. Darwin
Congratulations [on Mrs H’s delivery].
