Darwin Correspondence Project

From Asa Gray   26 and 29 October [1869]

Charlton House, Kew

Oct. 26th

My Dear Darwin

As you are to be up in London next Monday, and we leave it the following Monday, we must contrive to meet in the course of that final week. I will write in time when we can arrange our precious days, unless you can fix upon the day that suits you best and apprize us.

Oct. 29.

Even now I am quite unable to say what day next week we can look in upon you in Queen Anne St.

I will hand the slip with question to Agassiz.

His son Alexander, with wife and children are over here—when last heard of at Dublin, soon to be in London; but we shall very likely miss them. The Drosera filiformis will probably yet come.

In haste | Ever Yours | Asa Gray


As CD is to be in London, AG will try to get to Queen Anne St to see him.
