To J. H. Balfour 21 October 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear Sir
It was very kind of you to remember about the seed of Corydalis.—2 From some wretched seed I did raise one single plant; but I am very glad of what you sent me to raise more, next summer.—3
I enclose only Photograph of myself which I have, made of me this summer by my son.—4
Very many thanks for yours.—
Yours sincerely. | Ch. Darwin
