July 15. 1879

My dear Häckel

On August 1st we all go for a month to the Lakes in Cumberland, as I want a little rest. I your return home is delayed till September & you can possibly spare the time, I hope that you will pay us a visit, as it would || be a great pleasure to me to see you.

I am astonished to hear what a gigantic undertaking the description of the Radiolarians collected during the Challenger expedition proves to be.

I am glad to hear || that your labours on the Medusa are drawing to close.

For Heaven sake do not overwork your brain, & always remember what e tender organ it is.

My dear Häckel

Yours truly sincerely

Charles Darwin
