32 St James Hall

April 25/82

Dear Darwin,

A line to express my sympathy with you under the great loss which you have sustained: a loss shared by all living men. It was once my privilege to meet your father and I


shall preserve the memory of my visit to his house amongst the recollections of my life.

Yrs truly

Edmond Fitzmaurice
