To W. H. Flower 13 October 1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
My dear Mr Flower
I thank you sincerely for your very kind letter,—2 I am sure that I have always found you most goodnatured in giving me information, but I did not know whether I might not be trespassing too far. The best & safest plan, from what you say, will be to strike out all about the larynx in the Cetaceans, which I have done.—3 Yours truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
The M.S. has come just at the right time for me.
Will strike out passage on larynx in cetaceans from his MS [of Origin, 6th ed.].
