To L. H. Jeitteles 7 November 1872
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
Nov. 7th 1872
I am much obliged for your very kind letter & present of your memoir, which I hope soon to read.1 The points to which you refer are of great interest to me; but I am sorry to say that I read German with much difficulty.
I am grieved to hear that the latter years have been sorrowful & full of adversity.— As for myself, my health remains very feeble & my strength with advancing old age grows very small.
With good wishes for your future happiness & with my respect, I remain | Dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin
Thanks LHJ for a memoir [about remains and antiquities of Olmütz in Moravia].
