From John Tyndall   10 April 1873

Royal Institution of Great Britain

10th April 1873

My dear Darwin.

I have got £100 with a sweet good letter from Armstrong—1 He desires me to call upon him again if more be needed.

We shall, however, have quite sufficient for our purpose. I was also sure of Farrer,2 and he has justified my confidence in him.

Ever heartily yours | John Tyndall
