Asks for reference to publication about Xenobalanus.
Down Farnborough Kent
My dear Sir
In a former letter, I ventured to ask you to inform me of the reference to publication in which Xenobalanus globicipitis has appeared. If you will take the trouble to answer me this question, you will much add to the kindness which you formerly showed me, & for which I shall ever feel much obliged.
With much respect | Your obliged servant | C. Darwin
