To Robert Caspary 21 February 1
I hope you will excuse the liberty which I take in begging a favour of you. You read a paper at the Amsterdam Hort: Congress on cases like that of Cytisus Adami. Would you have the kindness to tell me where this has been, or will be, published? and if you have a spare copy I should be grateful for it.2 If you do not intend to publish it I beg you not to take the trouble to answer this note as I shall understand your silence.
I am very much interested in this subject which I hope you will receive as some excuse for my troubling you.3
With very sincere respect I beg leave to remain | Dear Sir | yours faithfully | Ch. Darwin
