From John Tyndall   1 March [1871]1

Royal Institution of Great Britain

1st. March

My dear Darwin.

If Ogle would call here we could arrange together such experiments as he might think suitable for his purpose.2 I know him and shall be glad to see him.

Yours ever | John Tyndall


The year is established by the relationship between this letter and the first letter to John Tyndall, 1 March [1871].
Tyndall evidently refers to John William Ogle, but CD, in his letters to Tyndall of 1 March [1871], refers to William Ogle.


JT suggests that Ogle call upon him so that they can arrange experiments suitable for his purpose.
