CHARLES DARWIN (1809-1882) Signed autograph letter to Lord Sackville Cecil

Down house, June 8th 1876. 2 pp. 20,5х13cm 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...”. Unpublished at the scholar’s correspondence.
