To John Innes [after 16 February 1857]1
I strongly recommend you to read enclosed beginning at p. 38 to 91.—2 Von Siebold is about the most careful & profound naturalist in Europe.3 I have found in this Book some facts, such as I was enquiring from you in regard to Bees.—4
Ever yours | C. Darwin
Recommends he read passages on bees by C. T. E. von Siebold [in On the true parthenogenesis in moths and bees (1857)].
