From H. E. Darwin [after 8 February 1870]1
Thanks for your note abt the M.S.S. I will obey all your instructions—& I shall be extremely interested in reading it—so you needn’t thank me for it—& here what time I spend in my own room is so very undisturbed it goes much further.2 When I know no human being will come after me & lay out my plans for the day & stick to them. Certainly to have you turned Parson will be a change— I expect I shall want it enlarging not contracting —cos I think you think an apology is wanting for writing abt any thing so unimportant as the mind of man!
Responds to note about the MS [Descent] with great interest and promises to obey his instructions. [See 7124.]
