To V. O. Kovalevsky 24 September 
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
My dear Sir
I have written to the Printers to send you to Euston Rd. the 2 first sheets;1 & I thought that I had sent you finally corrected copies.—2
I returned yesterday by Book-Post the Work, about which you were so very kind.—3
I regretted extremely that I saw so little of you that evening, for there were many points on which I shd. have liked to have talked with you;4 but such is my fate: I kept very unwell all yesterday & now my wife insists that I must stop work & leave home for a time & I suppose I must.5 In fact there is not much more work left in me.—
Farewell, I wish you all success.— | Yours very sincerely | Ch Darwin
Sends proof-sheets [of Expression].
