To L. E. Becker 2 August 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
I am very much obliged for the Lychnis seed, which shall be sown immediately;2 & I will try, as you have done, next year to fertilise the little ovaria.—
It is odd about the Linum; I have never failed to find the two forms, though they certainly resemble each other closely.—3
In Haste, | Dear Madam | Your sincerely obliged | Ch. Darwin
Thanks LEB for the Lychnis seed [see 4258], which he will plant in the hope of fertilising the little ovaria.
Comments on the two forms of Linum.
