To G. A. Eisen 3 December 1871
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
Dec 3. 1871
I am much obliged to you for your kindness in sending me your memoir, so well illustrated, on Earth-worms.1 I am at present by an odd chance observing one little point in their habits, & consequently I shall be very glad to learn something from you, by the aid of one of my sons who knows a little Swedish, with respect to the places frequented by the various species etc.—2
With my best thanks & respect | I remain dear Sir | Yours faithfully | Charles Darwin
Thanks GAE for memoir on earthworms [Bidrag till Skandinaviens Oligochaetfauna (1871)]. CD by chance is just now observing "one little point in their habits". Will be happy to learn something about the places frequented by the various species.
