To John Phillips1 [18 March 1839]2
My dear Sir
I send the Map, as you desired: it is, however, hardly clear enough to expose.—
Would it be possible for me to attend the lecture on Tuesday.—3 if you can admit me, for this one day, will you send me a line per 2d post, and inform me at what hour it will commence, although I am not certain I shall be able to come (even if you can admit me) as I have an engagement at one hour of the day.
Believe me | Most truly Yours | Chas. Darwin Monday Morning
12 Upper Gower St.
Will send JP a map as requested. Asks for a ticket to one of JP’s lectures.
