MR. CHARLES DARWIN'S LETTERS.
Down, Beckenham: May 25, 1882
Will you allow me to mention that I am collecting my father's letters with a view to a biography?1 I shall be greatly indebted to any of my father's friends and correspondents who may have letters from him if they will allow me to see and make copies of them. I need hardly add that no letter shall be published without the full consent of its owner.
1 The biography was published in 1887 as Life and letters.
