To W. R. Grove   [26 April 1866]1

[6 Queen Anne Street, London]

Dear Grove

I am sorry to say that I am so tired this evening that I could talk to no one, though I am sure I am very much obliged to you for offering to come.

I have a half-sort of engagement to go, if able, to Kew on Sunday afternoon.2 Would you excuse me proposing to call on you for half an hour on Sunday morning at 10 or 1012 or 11.—

To save you trouble, of writing I will say, if I do not hear to contrary that I will call about 10; but of course if you are tired or have other engagement put me off without least scruple3

Yours very sincerely | Ch. Darwin
