My dear Mr. Darwin,

Very many thanks for yr kind letter; I have altered my paper accordingly somewhat materially.—1

Hoping yr health is improving, believe me | Dr. Mr Darwin | Yrs very truly | Geo. Henslow


In his letter to Henslow of 15 [June 1866], CD had replied to Henslow’s questions on reversion. Henslow also refers to Henslow 1866b, the proof-sheets of which he had sent to CD for comment (see letter from George Henslow, 11 June [1866]).
CD had lent Henslow books on hybridism (see letter from George Henslow, 18 May 1866 and n. 2).
CD requested that Henslow return his books to his brother, Erasmus Alvey Darwin, who lived at 6 Queen Anne Street, London (see letter to George Henslow, 12 June [1866]).


Has altered paper according to CD’s comments.
