To T. H. Farrer   24 September [1868]1

Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.

Sep. 24.

My dear Mr Farrer

I have been pleased to receive the enclosed this morning, which I forward without delay. As soon as I received the appendix about Lobelia I forwarded that also & presume that a proof sheet will soon be sent.2

When you have corrected the enclosed you had better send it direct by the address enclosed.

I am glad the Editors had the sense to appreciate your paper.3

Yours very sincerely | Ch. Darwin
