We missed a date...

24 August, 1831, Charles Darwin was invited to sail on HMS Beagle. H/t Stranger Fruit.

You might have missed the anniversary of the date on which Henslow's letter was sent, but Darwin didn't receive it until 29th August - which makes today a significant anniversary, as far as I'm concerned.
