From George Howard Darwin [12 June 1862]1
My dear Papa
L. is unwell & the doctor says it is Scarlet fever so he asked me if it would be best to send home or to lodging so I said home.2
I remain | G. H D
As I thought you would like Mr. Williams to see him I have telegraphed to Mr. W. to go to Down so don’t send for him3
Leonard Darwin has scarlet fever so GHD has said he should be sent home and has asked E. A. Williams to call at Down.
