To Leonard Jenyns 18 April 1
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Jenyns
I write one line to say your M.S. has come safely & to thank you much for it.—2 I shall take unopened to my Hydropathic Establishment & read it there & then or soon afterwards return it.—3
In Haste. Farewell with thanks. Ever yours truly | C. Darwin
I have read a good deal more of your Book & like it much.—4
Thanks LJ for his MS [of "Variation of species", Rep. BAAS 26 (1856): 101–5].
Will read it at his hydropathic establishment [Moor Park], where he is going for a rest.
