To H. H. Vivian 11 May 1
Dear Mr Vivian
I feel greatly obliged to you for the kind interest which you have shewn on the subject of the census, which interests me greatly. I have no doubt that your personal communication with Mr Bruce will have far more influence than any memorial or any thing that I cd do.2
With my sincere thanks I beg leave to remain | yours faithfully | Charles Darwin
P.S. I will endeavour to persuade Sir J. Lubbock3 to speak on the subject.
Thanks for HHV’s interest in the census [CD’s plan to add questions on consanguineous marriage to the census] on which CD hopes to persuade Sir J. Lubbock to speak.
