Dear Sir

I now append you a list of Lambs on my Farms for 8 years—1 If necessary my Books can be produced, I give you this for Mr Darwins private information as of course no one has a right to know what my Farm produces but my self.

If you require any more information I will be happy to give it

Yours Faithfully | Allan C Pagan
