To F. E. Abbot 2 July 1872
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
July 2d. 72/
My dear Sir
I am ashamed to say that I kept no memorandum when I first subscribed for the Index.— I now send the amount, according to my sons calculation, for two years subscription & postage; so kindly make a note the date to which this extends & which will probably last out my active life.—1
I was very much interested two or three months ago by a grand Lecture which you delivered in Boston.—2
I had the great pleasure of having here to dinner a short time ago Col. Higginson: he seems in every way a man, whom one may have been proud to have received.—3
With all good wishes | In Haste, My dear Sir | yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin
Renews subscription to Index.
Was interested in FEA’s lecture on "The God of science" [Index 24 Feb 1872].
