To George Howard Darwin 24 January 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear old fellow
I am so pleased. I congratulate you with all my heart & soul.—2 I always said from your early days that such energy, perseverance & talent as yours, would be sure to succeed; but I never expected such brilliant success as this.
Again & again I congratulate you. But you have made my hand tremble so I can hardly write. The Telegraph came here at eleven.— We have written to W. & Boys.—3
God Bless you my dear old fellow— may your life so continue.—
Your affectionate Father | Ch. Darwin
Congratulations on GHD’s brilliant tripos success.
