Darwin, C. R. to Darwin, Francis

2 June [1879]

    Summary Add

  • +

    Thanks for FD's letter describing microscopic work under experienced supervision.

  • +

    Is glad to hear of C. E. Stahl's objection to treating plants as mere machines.

  • +

    Pleased that J. von Sachs has yielded on growth.

  • +

    Perhaps Stahl will recognise whether the case of the silver fir is the same as that referred to in the German account [see 12074b].

  • +

    CD has finished the first draft of his essay on Erasmus Darwin's life and is "heartily sick of the job".
