I am very much obliged for your kind & handsome gift of game, which has arrived safely & has proved very acceptable.
Pray give my kind remembrances to your father2 who I hope keeps pretty well.
I should like very much to visit Alford & Beesby3 again, but I fear I shall never have spare time & strength
With our best thanks pray believe me dear Sir | yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin
Thanks correspondent for gift of game and sends remembrances to his father [John Higgins]. Would like to visit Alford and Beesby, but fears he will have neither time nor strength.
