Soldier, policitician, economist, eugenicist (1850-1943) and son of Charles Darwin. The recipient Dame Mary Scharlieb (1845-1931) was an early woman doctor. Two pages, quarto. Good, but on slightly discoloured and lightly creased paper, with staple stains to both top left-hand corners. An interesting letter concerning the efforts of Scharlieb's Committee to 'establish a Home where the wives of professional men could be certain to obtain excellent treatment at moderate fees'. Darwin's Council have always felt 'pride [.] in the record of its Maternity Home, where 547 babies were born and only two deaths occurred. Your Committee is in fact the same Committee to whom the credit for the success of this admirable institution has been due.' 'We hope that all professional bodies to whom you may apply will give most careful consideration to any plan which your Committee may place before them, especially in view of the invaluable experience gained during five years arduous management of our Maternity Home.'.
