To T. W. Woodbury   [after 17 March 1863]1

I thought & still think that I wrote to thank you for the artificial comb, which interested me much; but if you did not get a letter, it must have been lost or I did not write it.—2

With apologies, Dear Sir, | & my best thanks, | Yours very faithfully, | C. Darwin
