To Benjamin Dann Walsh 27 January 
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear Sir
After endless delays, latterly caused by the index-maker, my Book will be published in a few days time.—1 It has cost me much more labour than it is worth. But I write one line just to say that I have told my publisher to send you a copy to care of Messrs. Bailliere New York.—2
Pray excuse brevity as I am overwhelmed with letters, & accept my best wishes.— Believe me | yours very sincerely | Ch. Darwin
P.S | I was delighted by hearing yesterday that my second son of Trinity is Second Wrangler this year.3
Is sending a copy of Variation [to be published in a few days]. It cost more labour than it is worth.
George Darwin is Second Wrangler.
