Catalogue Note

Anne Thackeray Ritchie's reminiscences note that Darwin "...came to Freshwater with his family, and it was then that the photograph here reproduced was taken. When Darwin wrote to Mrs. Cameron warmly approving of the picture, he added 'there are sixteen people in my house, and every one your friend.' No one ever knew how to praise with more generous cordiality."
