Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear Sir
I received safely the two fine trees yesterday evening & heartily obliged I am to you for them.2 They are now in my green-house & I hope will fruit, for I am very curious to see that of the Double-peach.— I am, also, very much obliged for a former note with sketch from memory of the fruit.—3 I hope you will soon receive the “Origin”.—4
My dear Sir | Yours very sincerely obliged | Ch. Darwin
Has received the two trees sent by TR. Is anxious to see the fruit of the double peach.
The Origin is being sent.
