To John Tyndall 24 July 1
2. Hesketh Crescent | Torquay
My dear Tyndall
I write a single line to say that it was not of the least consequence your retaining the letter for as long as you liked.— I shall be most happy at any time to send you the letters again, if you like to publish any passages.—2
We are all here idling for health-sake & enjoying the beautiful scenery & sea air—
By the way the other day at dinner we were all sticking bits of ice together by their points, marvelling at the phenomenon & talking of you—3
Yours most sincerely | Ch. Darwin
Has been idling and enjoying the scenery.
