Oct. 20 1868
My dear Tyndall
The Asa Grays & Hookers are coming here on Saturday next, & it would give us all very great pleasure if you cd spare the time to come to us on that day & stay the Sunday with us.1
We dine at 7.30—& your best route will be by S.E. Railway from Charing Cross to Orpington Station, which is 4 miles from this house. Very many thanks for your note about Hinrichs whose papers I sent to you.2
I am sure you will excuse me in taking the privileges of an invalid & often leaving my guests.
My dear Tyndall | yours very sincerely. | Charles Darwin
P.S. You wd find 4.18. or 5.8. from Charing Cross convenient trains & if you will let me know which I will send a fly from here—
If you come to Bromley (6 miles off) flys are plentiful
Invites JT to come to Down with the Asa Grays and Hookers.
