From William Darwin Fox 5 [May 1864]1
Hillfield | Hampstead | NW2
My dear Darwin
I am a Man about Town for some little time to come, & should much like to see you and yours—if you can have me, & I can manage it. Are you at home, and if so, would you take me in & do for me for one night some day next week after Tuesday. I quite forget how you are approachable.
With our kindest regards to Mrs Darwin & yourself | Yours most sincerely | W D Fox
I can easily imagine you wd rather not have me—in which case, do not scruple to say so.
Would like to come to Down to visit.
