And if we are spared to see another Summer’s Sunshine, I shall look forward to visiting you,3 which will indeed be a real pleasure to | Your’s very affectionately | S. H. Haliburton
P S. | Your book interests me so much, there are many subjects in it, that I should like to talk to you about—
Thanks for CD’s photograph, which recalls the Charles Darwin of olden days.
