Dear Brother

      I called at Sir Walter Blacketts this morning I am sorry to say that I found that the Physicians had not the least hopes; Sr John Trevelian came whilst I was there; I asked Mr Darwin if by my staying some days in Town I could be of any use whatever; he told me none in the least; so I thought better to return to Thorpe Lee as my staying might look as if I meant to interfere with Sr John T. If there was any Impropriety in not sending an Express for Mr Trevelian; you must refer it intirely to Mr Darwin; who told me there was no occasion; & that he had wrote to Mr Trevelian.

      I am sorry to have had occasion to trouble you on this melancholy an occasion. I saw Mr Ridley and Sr Mattw this morning  & I am Dear Bror	yrs most affec

	E Blackett
