William Abott Herdman an Ernst Haeckel, Liverpool, 31.12.1900
„Away then, Away,
We lose sport by delay,
But first leave all sorrow behind us;
If Miss Fortune should come,
We are all gone from home,
And a-fishing she never can find us.”
Well – Good Luck to you! And ‘Good Hunting’ –
With All Good Wishes
For the New Year –
and as much as you like
of the century –
From Dr & Mrs Herdman and Familiy.
