From G. H. Darwin [23 February 1869]1
My dear Father,
I enclose Croll’s letter.2 Altho’ Miller told me that Delaunay’s paper was translated in the Geolog. magazine, yet when I went to the Phil. Soc. rooms, I cd find no such Mag. & therefore I am up a tree again.3
I want to know whether you will have the 70£, wh. wd naturally be put to my acct. at the bank on the 1st of Ap., put to my acct. now, as I shall want to take 50 or 60£ to Paris. I am going to write to St. Barbe to find out the best way to take it.4 Frank5 has gone up to town to be teethed today, but I suppose is coming back this evening. I have received a letter from Mr. Hamilton asking me to dinner on the 4th. to meet Hollams.6
I shall come home on Tuesday & probably start for Paris on Friday7
Your affectionate Son | G H Darwin
