To Charles Babbage [June–September 1837]1
36 Grt. Marlborough Stt —
My dear Sir
I received a letter last week from Mr Lyell, in which he asks me to tell you, that by some misunderstanding he did not know you wanted Mr Whewell’s History of the Induct: Sc:2 & that he consequently sent it up to Scotland. He begs me to send my copy on to you, in place of his.
Your’s most truly | Chas. Darwin
At Lyell’s request sends his copy of Whewell’s History of inductive sciences  to CB.
