Darwin Correspondence Project

To ?   [1876?]1

Dear Sir

Absence from Home has prevented my answering your letter of the       earlier

I have much pleasure in complying with the request of your Club & enclose 2 photographs, one of which may be selected & the other thrown away.2 I have added my autograph, but I am not sure whether this what you wished me to do

Sincerely | —— | C D


The year is conjectured from handwritten notes on the letter reading ‘?1876’ and ‘CD 76’.
The letter to which this is a reply has not been found, and the club has not been identified. CD was elected a member of the Northampton Natural History Society and Field Club in 1876 (Correspondence vol. 24, letter to G. C. Druce, 25 April 1876).


Complies with correspondent’s request; encloses photographs of himself.
