To Hurst & Blackett 15 November 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
I see that Miss Meteyard is preparing a life of my grandfather Josiah Wedgwood.2 I have in my possession a good many letters to him from Dr Erasmus Darwin (also my grandfather) & if they would be likely to give any information, I shall be glad to send them to Miss Meteyard or to you.3
They are chiefly on semi-scientific subjects & probably would only be useful as shewing what subjects were occupying Mr Wedgwood’s mind & the dates of them.
Perhaps you will forward this to Miss Meteyard
I am Gentleman | Yours faithfully | Charles Darwin
