To Caroline Wedgwood   20 September [1881]

Summary

Division of CW’s share [of E. A. Darwin’s estate]. Investment advice.

Recounts his memories of their mother and of her death. Remembers "her black velvet gown and her work table and the death scene", but cannot remember her face. Remembers that Caroline "always acted like a mother" to him and Catherine.

Can think of no suggestion to send to Mrs Forsyth. "The best plan is to read, think and speculate and then some suggestion or doubt will occur which can be determined or verified out of observation."
