Down. | Beckenham | Kent. S.E.
My dear Miss Lloyd
I have thought that you wd. like to see the enclosed letter from Mr B. Dawkins, who has evidently been much pleased by his visit, though in some geological respects not so interesting as he expected.2 There is something wonderfully curious in coming across remains of an old savage progenitor, with their ground-down teeth.—3
Pray believe me | yours truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
