From W. B. Tegetmeier [after 24 January 1866]1
Muswell Hill | N
My dear Sir
I write a hasty line to acknowledge the receipt of yours with enclosure—
The expenses and trouble which I have incurred have been so slight that your remittance far overpays them.2
I have heard from Mr Zurhorst and shall meet him next week. we will both repeat experiments and consequently their will be but little chance of error I shall arrange with him as to our exact modes of trial—3
If you would like I can send you a set of engravings as far as they are done.4
Believe me | Very truly Yours | W B Tegetmeier
C. Darwin Esq.
Mr Blyth is writing some articles on Indian Cattle, (Gaours and Gayals) in the Field.5 I can cut them out and send you if you like, I am sure you will be sorry to hear they are from a place of enforced temporary quietness a private asylum in fact—6
Thanks for the remittance.
Both WBT and Mr Zurhorst will repeat Zurhorst’s experiment to eliminate any chance of error.
Edward Blyth is writing on Indian cattle for the Field [27 (1866): 55–6, 77].
