To William Erasmus Darwin [24 January 1861]
Thursday | 12o oclock
My dear William
The vomiting continued all yesterday till night, when it stopped & has not returned.1 But she has taken gigantic dose of Calomel which has not acted, so we continue uneasy; but Mr Williams who has been just here, considers her better.2 She eats absolutely nothing.—
I hope that your journey was prosperous & that you will, my dearest old fellow, enjoy yourself.—3 We shall be glad of a note.
Your affect | C. Darwin
