To George Bentham 1 October 1866
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
October 1st. 1866
My dear Bentham,
I write one line to thank you for your note, which will be very useful to me,1 and to say how very glad I shall be to see you when you are at Holwood.—2 Would it suit Mrs. Bentham3 and yourself to fix any day and come here to luncheon at half past one? I may just mention that by my doctors orders I ride every day from 12 to luncheon time.4
Believe me | Yours very sincerely | Charles Darwin
