My dear Sir
I am very much obliged to you for your great kindness in remembering my desire for information about sports, & for the curious & nicely dried specimen received yesterday. As it happens I have already seen this case, but I am not the less grateful to you for your kindness—1
Pray believe me | Yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin
Thanks GM for a specimen; it is a sport with which he is already familiar.
