To W. B. Tegetmeier 18 February 1
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Sir
I have just received some Fowls from the Rajah Sir James Brooke,2 which are not of much interest, but as I have thought you would like to display all you cd at Zoolog. Soc.3 I will this night send them to Carstang’s. They consist of white silk Fowls originally from China, one crested, & some frizzled Fowls of unknown origin procured at Singapore. They are labelled.—
My dear Sir | Yours very sincerely | C. Darwin
