From Charles Kingsley 30 May 1865
Eversley Rectory, | Winchfield.
My dear Sir
We desire much your photograph. I say honestly, there is no living man whom I have not seen, whom I wish to see as much as I do you: & failing that, to have some Eidolon1 of you for myself & mine.
If you have any photograph of yourself—or if you can tell me where I can procure one, you will do me a real favour.
The more I think, & see, the more I find to make me thankful for your great book2
Yours faithfully | C Kingsley
Requests CD’s photograph.
