Mr C. Darwin

Sir

I have just written you a letter in the interest of D. Appleton & Co Publishers of this city and being not sure of your country address I directed it to the Athenæum—club of which I believe you are a member and to increase the chance of your getting it soon I send this note to what may be your country place1

Very respectfully | E. L. Youmans

—As to my relation to this matter I may refer you to Huxley Spencer Tyndall Bain and Mill in &c &c—publication of whose works I have been interested though not pecuniarily.2

E.L.Y.
