From W. B. Tegetmeier [16–20 February 1868]1
My dear Sir
I write a hurried line and send you the first instalment relating the Thoroughbred horses.2
If you will return the Coursing Calendar I will extract from it. The other years of greyhounds must be made up out of the papers as no return has been compiled3
In extreme haste | Truly Yours | W B Tegetmeier
C Darwin Esq.
Encloses information on sex ratios in thoroughbred horses.
