From John Lubbock 16 January 1867
My dear Mr. Darwin
My brother in law Robert Birkbeck1 is going to spend some months in Corsica, & he thinks that Murray might possibly like some notes with reference to a Handbook for the Island.2
He is anxious therefore for a note of introduction to him & I thought I might take the liberty of asking you to give him one.
If you would not mind adding, on my authority, that he is a man who will take pains to get accurate information, & whose statements would I think be thoroughly reliable, I should be very much obliged.
Hoping you are better again | I remain, dear Mr. Darwin, | Very sincerely yours | John Lubbock
C. Darwin Esq
JL’s brother-in-law [Robert Birkbeck] would like a note of introduction to John Murray.
