To Alfred Newton 30 May 1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
My dear Prof. Newton
Very many thanks for your facts & correction. The case of the gull must come out.2 Oh Lord how difficult accuracy is! Yesterday we had a letter from Frank, groaning in spirit at the thoughts that it was his last term in Cambridge, which is dear also to me.—3
Yours very sincerely | Ch. Darwin.
Thanks AN for facts and corrections [for Descent].
