To Walter White 17 [October – November 1862?]1
I have received Vol I of Hort. Transact. & am much obliged but it is not the right volume; I believe that I wrote Vol I second series.2 Have you not 2d series? Will you kindly pass this note on to Linn. Soc to see if they have the Second series; & if so ask them to send it by Delivery Coy on Wednesday morning to enclosed address. Will you kindly inform me whether either Soc. has this second series? for I must somehow get it— I am sorry to cause so much trouble—
In Haste | Yours faithfully | C. Darwin
