My Dear Darwin
So you want some cotton-seeds! I sent south for them, & here will be all you need, but you can have more. Two-kinds; those in the copious white wool probably last. That is ``Green-seed'' from Alabama. The other is sea-island.
The Man who sent the seed has heard of ``Nine Cotton'', of which he once had a few seeds ``sent from England'' and he wants more—to grow. Now you ask $Hooker$ if he knows of such a thing, and can get hold of some for this southern planter,—& will send by post hither.
