2 pp. 20,5х13 см. Darwin tells the reporter that his sister (Caroline Wedgwood, 1800-1888) returned to Leith hill place healthy, thanking him for his great kindness and help in arranging a «special train» for her. And expresses doubts about her health: «... Whether she will ever recover is very doubtful after so terrible an illness, but her husband is old & delicate, & if he had been taken ill in the same small sea-side villa, it would have killed her with distress...».
