SEDGWICK, Adam (1785-1873). Geologist.
Autograph Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent, 1½ pages 8vo on the second and third facing pages (first page cut in half), no place, 'Thursday morn' no date. Suggesting that his correspondent's copy of Babbington might be 'left with a note requiring him to give the Copy of your note to the Rivers'.
The letter, in a shaky hand, is written on the back of a black-edged letter mentioning the scholar Churchill Babington's 'publication'.
A postscript notes that he is to start for Norwich in a few hours.
