From E. A. Darwin 1 July 1
I am sorry to bother you, but Carlyle took your letter to the Museum & found that the book was not there & therefore supposes that he had it from the Geolog. Soc:2 Will you give me a letter of introduction just stating that it is to enquire the title of a book for Carlyle & if possible to borrow it—
yours | E D
If you are unwell there is no hurry
Asks for a note to the Geological Society, since the museum did not have the book Carlyle wanted.
