From E. A. Darwin [15? April 1864]1
Sir Henry2 wants to see the Zoonomia3 to look over it as he fancies there may be germs of forgotten discoveries. Have you the book or is it at Shrewsbury.
I told him the good news of your being so much better, but it was rather difficult talking of abstract doctoring without doctors.4
Snow is gone to Folkestone in the hopes of meeting Fanny, & she was in such a state of anxiety it was perhaps the best thing. Dr Jenner saw him & said it was a decided case of tubercles in lung’s & bowels5
