From C. C. Babington   30 January 1862

Cambridge

30. Ja〈n. 186〉2

Dear Darwin,

I send a few seeds; all that we have.1

I am told that Le Coq〈,〉 who has published a voluminous work on the Geograph. Distrib. of Europæan plants mentions not a few instances of apparent dimorphism.2

Yours truly | Charles C. Babington—

Footnotes

Lecoq 1854–8. CD had just finished ‘looking through’ this nine-volume work, and had derived from it a number of cases of apparent dimorphism (see letter to Asa Gray, 22 January [1862]); he had cited some of them in his letter to Babington of 20 January [1862]. There is an annotated copy of the work in the Darwin Library–CUL (see Marginalia 1: 488–95).

Summary

Encloses seeds.

Lecoq’s work mentions instances of apparent dimorphism. [H. Lecoq, Études sur la géographie botanique de l’Europe, 9 vols. (1854–8).]
