From E. A. Darwin 20 June 1
I dont know if it will be in your power to give Carlyle a helping hand about a book. On some former occasion he borrowed a book from the Jermyn St Museum he does not remember thro’ whom or the exact title. It was an 8vo with a cold geological map on the ‘Saxon Switzerland’.2
Do you know the Librarian well enough to give him the trouble of ascertaining the tittle of the Book & if such things are done to lend the book for a few days to Carlyle.3
Asks CD to help Thomas Carlyle find and borrow a book.
