Description:

Darwin, Charles (1809-1882), Signed letter, February 13, 1875, two pages, to Dr. Gustavus Fritsche, discussing a proposed visit and his health, text in full: "I shall be happy to see you here, but I am sorry to say that the sate of my health seldom allows me to convene with anyone for more than half an hour. If next Tuesday (the 16th) will suit you, I would suggest your coming by the train which leaves Charing Cross at 10:35, & I will send my carriage to Orsington to meet you. We will lunch at one o'clock & you can return by the train leaving Orsington at 2:47. Dear Sir, yours faithfully" with postscript "P.S. If you cannot come on Tuesday Wednesday would suit me equally well but in that case be so kind as to let me know", with envelope, 7 7/8 by 5 in., (very good overall, minor spotting and soiling, folds).
Estimate $1,500-2,000
