Jan 10

My dear Dr Clark

We have just come to London & I should be greatly obliged if you cd call & see me.

You will observe that I am now quite in your neighbourhood.2

I am at home every evening; but if you could let me know when you could call, this wd make my being at home doubly sure—

Yours very gratefully | Ch. Darwin
