From G. H. Darwin [13 June 1871]1
New University Club | St. James’s St.
Tuesd. | 11. PM
The Test’s bill has unexpectedly got thro’ the Lords tonight2 & will get the Royal Consent on Thursd. just in time to save me all bother on the subjt as the end on the term is Tuesday.—3 It wouldn’t have been in time unless it had passed the Lords before 7 tonight & it only got thro’ at about 6.30 & is now on its way to Scotland in the Limited Mail.4 All is well that ends well
Yours affectionately | G H Darwin
