Dear & Honoured Sir

I write in haste to catch the Post just to say that I received this morning your “Untersuchungen uber die Entwickelung”2 & two copies of your “Morphologische Studien”3 (one of which I will give to some good man)4 & likewise your Portrait.

For all these most kind gifts I most heartily thank you.—

With sincere respect | Yours very truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
