Down, | Beckenham, Kent.

April 3rd 1874.

My dear Lubbock,

I am much obliged to you for being willing to let me have the little piece of land.1

I will write by today’s post to my Solicitor, Mr Hacon of 18 Fenchurch Street,2 and ask him to call on Mr. Denby3 to arrange about the affair; and I hope that you will thus be caused no more trouble.

Yours sincerely & obliged | Ch. Darwin


Thanks for JL’s willingness to sell land.
