Yeah. Who needs children if you have enough grandchildren?

Context from:Life and Letters of Charles Darwin: the Evolution
By Charles Darwin

Charles Darwin to W.D FOX. Down, March 7th(1852)

My dear Fox,

It is indeed an age since we have had any communication,& very glad I was to receive your note. Our long silence occurred to me a few weeks since,& I had then thought of writing but was idle. I congratulate & condole with you on your tenth child; but please to observe when I have a 10th, send only condolences to me. We have now seven children, all well Thank God, as well as their mother; of these 7, five are Boys; & my Father used to say that it was certain, that a Boy gave as much trouble as three girls, so that bona fide we have 17 children.
............

Very many thanks for your most kind & large invitation to Delamere; but I fear we can hardly compass it. I dread going anywhere,on account of my stomach so easily failing under any excitement. I rarely even now go to London; not that I am at all worse, perhaps rather better & lead a very comfortable life with my 3 hours of daily work, but it is the life of a hermit. My nights are always bad, & that stops my becoming vigorous- You ask about water cure. I take intervals of 2 or 3 month, 5 or 6 weeks of moderately severe treatment,& always with good effect....

How paramount the future is to the present, when one is sur­rounded by children. My dread is hereditary ill-health. Even death is better for them.

My dear Fox your sincere friend
C. Darwin.
