Darwin Correspondence Project

From J. S. Burdon Sanderson   7 April [1875]1

Wednesday, April 7

Dear Mr Darwin

I send you a fair copy of the Memorial.2 We have made another copy, so that I am ready to proceed, but I think I shall do nothing more until I hear from Paget3 & have again seen you.

I will, if you will allow me call tomorrow morning.

Very truly yours | J Burdon Sanderson
