From E. A. Darwin [September 1868 – August 1870]1
I suppose this Bill is Carolines2 so send it on as I dare say it is paid— The Clock is not come.
Sylvester came & said some officers having been speaking so highly of Leonard that I thought you would like to hear it— in their expressive language ‘he is all there’ & perhaps Lenny can translate the military language.3 This note is all topsy turvy as I dont know to whom I am writing
Sends a bill he thinks is Caroline’s.
Tells CD of officers’ praise of Leonard.
