To John Innes 26 October 
15 Marine Parade | Eastbourne
Very many thanks for your kind note & all the trouble you have taken for me.—1
Etty progressed very well here for 4 weeks, but I am sure that you will sympathise with us, when you hear that she had a terrible attack of sickness on Monday & which has not yet ceased. She is much prostrated & what the end will be, we know not.— My poor wife is much knocked up.— I am very glad you give a good of Johnny.—2
Yours most truly | C. Darwin
Etty has had a relapse. "What the end will be, we know not."
