Ernest Willing Darling an Ernst Haeckel, Berkeley, California, 1. Mai 1913
ERNEST W. DARLING
Our dear Haeckel:
To receive a letter from you was an honor that I never hoped for. Am delighted with it, and shall keep it with my treasures, and show it to my friends.
Have duly forwarded your picture-postal to my sister who in her turn will be delighted, and I am sure || she will be more delighted to acknowledge it promptly. I do hope to reach you soon as possible and give you the „Olive-oil-water Massage”.
How I wish I could do something for your health now.
In deep gratitude to you for your everlasting service in emancipating human minds.
Ernest Darling. ||
