Ladies!

You express yourselves in very good English, & even if you had expressed yourselves obscurely, I should be a very dull man, if I did not perceive your kind feelings towards me, & did not acknowledge the honour which you have done me.—

I beg leave to remain, with much respect, | Yours truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
