To George Henslow 7 December 1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
My dear Mr Henslow
If you will take the trouble to look at p. 431 Vol. 2. of my Variation of Animals under Domestication, you will find the perplexed conclusion at which I have arrived in relation to variation & design.—2 To this statement I have nothing to add.—
Pray believe me | yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
Refers GH to vol. 2, p. 431 of Variation for the "perplexed conclusion" at which CD has arrived on variation and design. Has nothing to add to this statement.
