To J. B. Innes  January 1
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Innes
I am heartily glad to say that Quiz arrived last night safe & sound (but with a cough) & has been running about the house quite happy & very polite to every human being, including Cats.—2 Hearty thanks for your present.— Also for your two notes.—3 We most sincerely wish wish you all the happiness which can be expected in this world. Very glad we should be to see you here; but I think you will find yourself so well suited to your new career, that you will remain.4
We are a sick house with 3 Boys in bed with very bad feverish colds,5 so no more at present, except kind remembrances to Mrs. Innes & Johny, the young Laird—6
Ever my dear Innes | Yours very sincerely | Charles Darwin
