To J. J. Moulinié 22 February 1
Down Bromley Kent [6 Queen Anne Street]
My dear Sir
I am truly obliged to you for your extraordinary kindness in having taken such great trouble in translating the long paper & copying the diagrams. The paper has interested me much, not only in showing so much variation & the effects of selection within a short space of time; but more especially from the variations having been different under different conditions. For of such cases I have very few instances.— I shd never have heard of this paper.—2
My health continues the same; I am always what is called “a poor Devil”; but am able to work for two or three hours daily.—
Mrs. Darwin begs to be kindly remembered to you,3 & with my best thanks pray believe me | My dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | Charles Darwin.
Thanks JJM for translating long paper [by Carrière, J. Agric. Pratique 48 (1869): 159–67]. Paper interesting especially for showing variation has been different under different conditions.
