When you introduced your son to me his bright intelligent look struck me and I should have been pleased to number him among my students and give him any help in my power. Twenty years ago I lost the only son I then possessed 8: though he was but a child the blow was hard to bear and the memory of it makes my sympathy with your sorry very genuine. Patience & hard work pulled me through the evil days of that time 3 and though I do not think that a man’s life ever seems the same after one of these knockdown blows - he may be none the worse fitted to live in this no wise playfull world and do a man's work there. I trust that your experience may be no worse than mine Ever yours sincerely T.H .Huxley HUXLEY, THOMAS HENRI (1825-1895). Author, and Scientist. Teignmoufih, Devon.
