From John Lubbock [21 October 1866]1
My dear Mr. Darwin
I cannot very well come up to Down this afternoon.
You will I am sure be tired & must not overdo yourself. I wish you would send Haeckel down here to dinner & I would send him over to the station if he must go to night, or give him a bed & take him up in the morning if he could stay till then.2
Believe me | Yours most sincerely | John Lubbock
Pray tell him I am very anxious to make his acquaintance.
Anxious to make acquaintance of Ernst Haeckel [who was staying with CD].
