To H. E. Darwin [March] 18701
My dear Hen.
I have worked through, (& it is hard work) half of the 2d Chapter on mind, & your corrections & suggestions are excellent.2 I have adopted the greater number, & I am sure that they are very great improvements.— Some of the transpositions are most just. You have done me real good service; but by Jove how hard you must have worked & how thoroughily you have mastered my M.S. I am pleased with this Chapter now that it comes fresh to me.—
Your affectionate, admiring & obedient | Father, C. D.
All is as clear as daylight— your plan of putting corrections saves me a world of trouble, by just as much as it must have caused you.— N.B. you can write, I see, a perfectly clear hand, as in all the corrections.—
