My dear Sir,

On my return home today I found your very kind present of your “Witness of History etc” which I believe arrived two or three days ago.2

I thank you very sincerely for thinking of me, and, from turning over the pages, I feel sure that I shall find much that will interest me.

Pray believe me, with much respect. | Yours very faithfully | C. Darwin
