My dear Sir
I received safely the two fine trees yesterday evening & heartily obliged I am to you for them. They are now in my green-house & I hope will fruit, for I am very curious to see that of the Double-peach.— I am, also, very much obliged for a former note with sketch from memory of the fruit.— I hope you will soon receive the ``Origin''.—
My dear Sir | Yours very sincerely obliged | Ch. Darwin
