To Trenham Reeks?1 13 August 2
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Sir
Owing to your kindness, Mr Sam. Pratt of 47 N. Bond Stt has called here, during my absence & inspected the Slate Reliefs.3 He now writes to ask me what is the lowest price I will take for the lot. I am quite at a loss what to answer. I do not care for them myself & shd be glad to buy pictures with the money & therefore wish, of course, to get as much as I can. Will you advise me, & then I will give you no more trouble. And I can assure you that I appreciate all the trouble you have so very kindly taken for me.
My dear Sir | Yours sincerely & obliged | Ch. Darwin
Has been asked to set a price on slate relief slabs [see 2236]. Would appreciate advice from correspondent as he would like to buy pictures with the money.
