Darwin Correspondence Project

To Edward Blyth   25 March [1868]1

4 Chester Place | N.W.

March. 25.

Dear Blyth

I write one line to say that I have found your 4 sheets of M.S. most interesting & valuable.—2 I suppose fully half the facts were new to me. I shall probably use some, & hereafter shall have to make a few queries, about some names, which I cannot read with security.—

Yours truly obliged | Ch. Darwin


The year is established by the address. CD stayed at 4 Chester Place, Sarah Elizabeth Wedgwood’s house in London, from 11 March to 1 April 1868 (Emma Darwin’s diary (DAR 242)).
See letter from Edward Blyth, [before 25 March 1868].


Has found EB’s MS most interesting and valuable. Fully half the facts were new to him; will probably use some.
