CD never dreamed primroses did not abound with DO; apologises for trouble and sends flowers.
Will repay DO for cost of Cypripedium and for the Dionaea, if any can be got.
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Sir
I never dreamed that primroses did not abound with you & am sorry to have given you extra trouble.— I send by this Post, some flowers which I do not doubt will arrive safely & in fresh state.— Thanks for information about Oxalis.—
Please keep memorandum what I owe you for Cypripedium; & I can repay you when I know what the Dionæas cost, if any can be got—
Yours most truly | C. Darwin
