To D. F. Nevill 22 January 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
I received the Orchids safely & the other flowers, & I ought to have thanked your Ladyship earlier for your kindness, but I happened to be much engaged & deferred writing.
with my best thanks | I beg leave to remain | Your Ladyships | Truly obliged | Charles Darwin
P.S. Since the above was written I have received your Ladyships most kind note.—1 I am infinitely obliged for all your great kindness.—
No doubt the Photograph will be sent in a few days; but assuredly it will not ornament your room.—2
