My dear Sir,

I wrote so hurridly that I forgot to thank you for your kind remarks about my paper on tendrils. It has given me very great satisfaction & pleasure to hear that my résumé met with so decided an approval from you.—

I forgot also to enclose a copy of my Syllabus.

I will ascertain if there will be any alteration in the trains for April & then write & ask if it will be convt. for you to see me on monday 2d..

In mean time, believe me to be | My dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | Geo Henslow

C. Darwin Esq
