Darwin Correspondence Project

To L. H. Morgan   14 June [1871]1

Down, | Beckenham, Kent.

June 14th

My dear Mr Morgan

I really do not know how to thank you enough for your extraordinary kindness in having taken so much trouble for my sons. Your instructions about their route & your splendid supply of introductions will be invaluable to them.2 With hearty thanks | yours very truly obliged | Ch. Darwin


The year is established by the reference to Morgan’s providing information and introductions for CD’s sons (see n. 2, below).
George Howard Darwin and Francis Darwin left for a ten-week tour of the United States on 29 July 1871 (see letter to Asa Gray, 16 July [1871]). Morgan had visited Down on 9 June 1871 (see letter to L. H. Morgan, 7 June 1871 and n. 1).


Thanks LHM for his introductions for CD’s sons and for his instructions about their route [for their U. S. visit].
