To E. A. Darwin 21 June 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My friend Mr. Trenham Reeks, the Secretary at the Museum Jermyn St, would, I am sure, gladly give any information or aid to so distinguished a person as Mr. Carlyle.—2 I do not believe that Books are ever lent out, & Sir R. Murchison could alone give permission.—3 Carlyle could, if he thinks fit, take this note as an introduction to Mr Reeks.—4
Yours affecty | Ch. Darwin
His friend Trenham Reeks [Secretary of Museum of Practical Geology] would give Carlyle information and help. This note will serve as introduction.
