To C. V. Riley   30 May 18751

Down, Beckenham, Kent

My Dear Sir

I received this morning your seventh annual Report, & am very much obliged to you for having so kindly sent it to me.2 As far as my memory serves me I did not thank you for that last report, but there is not one which you have published in which I have not found much matter which has interested me greatly [. . .]3

Believe me my dear Sir. | Charles Darwin
