To Thomas Blunt 5 April 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear Sir
I write merely a line to thank you for your kind note.— We knew that your partnership was dissolved, but added the name from habit.—2
I most sincerely congratulate you on the success of your son in his scientific studies. Science runs in your blood.—3
The loss of my poor sister, Susan, has been a great one to many; & now after so many years there is no longer any connection between our family & Shrewsbury.4
With every good wish | Believe me | My dear Sir | Yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
