Will soon publish on insectivorous plants; asks for a particular observation on Dionaea.

My dear Madam
I am very much obliged for your extremely interesting letter, & I
am glad to hear that you are studying Dionæa in so earnest a manner.
My observations on cultivated plants are now complete, and I shall
publish them in six or nine months; though they will be of little value
compared with those made on the plant in its own country. As you kindly
offer me information, I should very much like to hear about one point.
