To W. H. Flower [1871?]1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear Mr Flower
I am ashamed to say that I do not know the rules for admission to your museum.2
My son, the bearer of this, is now attending to anatomy & wishes much to inspect some of the preparations; will you therefore be so kind as to turn him loose, if permitted into the Museum.
Pray believe me | yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
Does not know rules for admission to museum [of the Royal College of Surgeons]. CD’s son [Francis] wishes much to inspect some of the preparations.
