Francis Galton 20.4.1876

(Address) 42 Rutland Gate

April 20/ 1876

My dear Colonel

Pray excuse a few days delay in sending the Anthropometric Schedules, in reply to your note of the 14th which owing to some mistake, has only just reached me in the country. I shall be back in town on Monday [illegible] & will see next day to the matter The schedules were only finally presented (after numerous rewrites) just before Easter. You are indeed most zealous in all anthropological matters Such cases as you can find of "pace origin" or "race" will be of especial interest

Yrs very sincerely

Francis Galton
