To Adam White [January–March 1850]1
My dear Sir
As you tell me that Mr Adams is going out to Lancaster Sound,2 will you ask him, whether he will do me the real favour to collect for me any cirripedes floating or fixed from N. latitudes, marking localities. Care must be taken of the bases of the Sessile cirripedes.—
Will you also ask him, where “Cape Rivers” Voyage of Samarang is.—3
Yours in great Haste. | Very sincerely | C. Darwin
