My Dear Dr. Boott.
Since I saw you, I have been persuaded at the Brit. Museum to writedirect to Dr. Gould at Boston,f1 for I hear he is a very kind man &likes to assist everyone. Dr. Gould has attended to Cirripedia morethan any one else & if he grants my request, I consider it superfluousto trouble anyone else. Should this channel fail, I will not fail toremember your most kind offer.
