To J. D. Hooker [16 August 1864]1
My dear Hooker
I write now merely to say that if Mr Scott has time to come here for a day I shd very much like to see him.2 Tell him how to get to Bromley, which is 6 miles from this house. An omnibus to Keston3 meets many trains which will bring him of the way here & I can easily convey him back. Please explain to Mr Scott how short a time I can talk to any one4 & I have had an attack of sickness last week—5
I shall write soon
Ever yours | C Darwin
Scott would be very welcome at Down for a short visit.
