My dear Mr. Darwin
I should be very much obliged if you would look over the general remarks in the last dozen pages of the paper which I enclose, as I am particularly anxious to know what you think of my notions.2
I often long for a good talk with you & am very sorry to live so far off.3 If I was to come down by the 3.30 train some Saturday afternoon & drive straight over to you, so as to get to Down about 5, should that suit you? If not I must manage to drive over some afternoon earlier.
Please remember me very kindly to Mrs. Darwin & believe me | Yours affect | John Lubbock
