From Charles MacLaren to Thomas Walker   30 March 1840

Scotsman Office

30 March 1840


I have a letter from Mr Charles Darwin Naturalist to the late expedition to the Southern hemisphere stating that he has felt great interest in Mr Kemps notice of Terraces on the Eildon Hills and desiring me to procure him Mr Kemps address that he may send him a copy of his paper on Glenroy and put some queries to him. Not knowing whether Mr Kemp resides in Galashiels I send this note to you. Will you be so good as furnish him with Mr Kemps address. Mr Darwin resides at No 12 Upper Gower Street London.

Let me know if the Galashiels Society has a copy of my Geoly of Fife and the Lothians. If not, I shall be glad to send them a copy.

I am Sir

Your most ob Servnt

Cha Maclaren
