To Raphael Meldola 28 January 
Down. | Beckenham | Kent. S.E.
I am much obliged for your kindness in informing me of the hexadactylon case; but so many have been recorded that I do not think, except under very special circumstances, it wd. be worth your while further to investigate it.—1
With my thanks, | Yours faithfully & obliged | Ch. Darwin
