My Dear Dr. Boott.
Since I saw you, I have been persuaded at the Brit. Museum to write direct to Dr. Gould at Boston, for I hear he is a very kind man & likes to assist everyone.f1 Dr. Gould has attended to Cirripedia more than any one else & if he grants my request, I consider it superfluous to trouble anyone else.f2 Should this channel fail, I will not fail to remember your most kind offer.
With my true thanks for all your sympathy & assistance about Chloriform—f3 | pray believe me | Yours very sincerely | C. Darwin
