To Richard Kippist 31 March 
Down Bromley | Kent
My dear Sir
Will you have kindness to grant me a favour. I have been for some time elected Honorary member of a few foreign Societies, & as I see everyone gives their titles in list of members I shd like to do so;1 but I have mislaid most of the diplomas, & do not know how they shd. be called.2 Will you have the kindness to enter them in proper fashion, & then pass on the list to the Royal Soc. for its list of members3
I am honorary member of the Royal Soc. of Berlin,4 =“Regia Scientarum academica Suecica” (which I suppose is same as Stockholm of which I am member)5 =Regia Scient. Soc. Upsalensis=6 =Nat. Cæs. Cur.=7 =Neuchatel,8 (but probably this is not usually specified)— Philadelphia=9 & Edinburgh.=10
By accident I have got two copies of little Book by Rütimeyer, so send one for Library of Linn. Soc.—11
My dear Sir | Yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
