In his letter to Joseph Dalton Hooker of 21 April [1877], CD mentioned he had forgotten his card (an invitation to the Royal Society conversazione that took place on 25 April 1877) and would send for it; Francis Darwin sent the card from Down. CD visited London from 20 to 28 April 1877, staying first with his daughter and son-in-law, Henrietta Emma and Richard Buckley Litchfield, and from Tuesday 24 April with his brother, Erasmus Alvey Darwin (Emma Darwin’s diary (DAR 242)).
