It is true that there is an often-repeated story about Darwin converting
on (or close to) his death-bed; it's sometimes referred to as the "Lady
Hope" story. It's _very_ unlikely to be true, at least as far as the
conversion part of the story is concerned. The fullest account of the
story is probably James Moore's _The Darwin Legend_, published by Baker Books
(although it may already be out of print).
