Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
Ap. 3. 1872
My dear Sir
I am very much obliged for yr kind present of the vines, & for all the information which you have been so good as to give me.1 I fear that the experiment will be more difficult than I had expected. I return with many thanks by this post the periodical about the Amygdalus—2 I am glad to hear that your health keeps good, & as your mind is so full of knowledge I dare say you will be able to occupy yourself—
With many thanks | believe me | yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin
