To W. W. Baxter? 17 January [1872–4]1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
Will you send me thrice the quantity of physic herewith prescribed & kindly mark outside bottle in ounces & drams how much my dose is twice a day, as this is far more convenient than roughly graduated bottle.— Please be careful about the Nux vomica as I am rather afraid of this.2 If you think it a large dose for a man with a very poor constitution, will you be so kind as to inform me.—
Please also send 6 or 8 oz of Glycerine
Dear Sir | Yours faithfully | Ch. Darwin
Requests a prescribed physic [not specified].
