To John Innes [8 May 1848]1
My dear Sir
I enclose my 3£ subscription for your Sunday school, & I am much obliged to you for informing me it was due.— I was sorry I was unable to see you the day you called & were so good as to leave the Coal Club2 Papers, but I have had an extra amount of unwellness of late.—
As you will probably like to know beforehand, I take this opportunity of begging to be allowed for the future to reduce my subscription to 2£ per annum to the Sunday School:3 my motive is that we subscribe altogether to five schools & I find the amount is rather too much for my means.
Pray believe me | my dear Sir | Yours sincerely | C. Darwin Rev J. Innes
Encloses his £3 subscription to JBI’s Sunday School. Asks to reduce it in the future to £2 per annum.
Has been unwell.
