To Lovell Augustus Reeve 25 April 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear Sir
I am extremely much obliged for your very kind present of your really beautiful work on the British Land mollusks.2 I am extremely glad to posses a copy & wish my knowledge rendered me more worthy of its possession.—
I shall take an early opportunity of carefully looking through it, for but lately I was wishing for information on two or three little points.—
With my best thanks | Pray believe me | Yours very faithfully | Charles Darwin
Thanks for LAR’s book [The land and freshwater mollusks indigenous to, or naturalised in, the British Isles (1863)].
