Down Bromley | Kent.
My dear Sulivan
I am extremely much obliged to you for getting me Mr Sterling’s answers. They are of much interest to me. I had quite forgotten that I had previously sent nearly the same questions:2 the answer about the breeding of the dogs comes in very useful just now that I am writing upon domestic animals.3 Many thanks also about the white cattle.4
I am very glad you were so kind as to call on my son William; he does not have many holidays, but if he cd spare the time I am sure he wd enjoy seeing you at Bournemouth.5
My dear Sulivan, | yours very sincerely | Ch. Darwin
Thanks BJS for W. H. Stirling’s answers [to queries about expression]
and for information on cattle and breeding of dogs.
