Dear William Darwin
Prof. Allman was talking yesterday to Adm. Sir . . . Sullivan, a former messmate of your father on board the Beagle, who spoke emphatically of his perfect good temper & forbearance under what were undoubtedly trying
circumstances including the hot temper of the Captain (Fitz Roy). It would be well if Frank got Admiral Sullivan to write a few lines about this, for the Life.
About the other matter in which you spoke, I fancy R. Browning's judgement would be very valuable & easily accessible. He was at the unveiling.
The lamps last night were most picturesque and redolent.
Ap. 23th. 85
