To Edward Bartlett 15 October 1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
I hope that you will excuse me troubling you, but I shd. be greatly obliged if you could send me pretty soon (as my M.S. must go to the Printers) any information on the Egyptian goose, both sifting the water & biting or tearing like a common goose the herbage.—2
I hope that you received safely the P.O.3 & the 2 geese which were returned.
Dear Sir | Yours faithfully | Ch. Darwin
Asks for information on feeding habits of Egyptian goose.
