Footnotes

The date is established by the relationship between this letter, the letter to Daniel Oliver, 18 July [1863], and the letter from Daniel Oliver, 20 July 1863.
Duchartre 1862 described the enlargement of ovules under the influence of pollen, apparently without being fertilised. Similar observations were detailed in Hildebrand 1863b.
