Dear & Honoured Sir

I write in haste to catch the Post just to say that I received this morning your “Untersuchungen uber die Entwickelung”1 & two copies of your “Morphologische Studien”2 (one of which I will give to some good man)3 & likewise your Portrait.

For all these most kind gifts I most heartily thank you.—

With sincere respect | Yours very truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
