My dear Sir
Owing to long continued illness & absence from London, I received only a few days ago the copy of your “Methods of Study” with some other publications,1 & your kind note of introduction to Mr Lesly.2
I thank you sincerely for the above present.
I know well how strongly you are opposed to nearly everything I have written & it gratifies me deeply that you have not for this cause taken, like a few of my former English friends, a personal dislike to me.3
With my cordial thanks & sincere respect | I remain my dear Sir | yours very sincerely | Charles Darwin
Thanks LA for Methods of study .
Is gratified that he has not taken a personal dislike to CD, though he is strongly opposed to nearly everything CD has written.
