To Francis Galton 23 January 1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
My dear Galton
The Rabbits have all lost their patches & are grey of different tints; so you were right. They are quite mature now & ready to breed. We have put 2 does to a buck, for one more generation.
Had you not better have the others soon, as we shall soon want space for the Breeders?—2
Have you seen Mr Crookes?—3 I hope to Heaven you have, as I for one shd. feel entire confidence in your conclusion.—
Ever yours | sincerely | Ch. Darwin
