To W. H. Edwards 23 April 1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
I am very much obliged to you for your kindness in having sent me Part 9. of your Butterflies, which is one of the most beautiful works which I have seen.2 Your careful observations on the dimorphism or rather trimorphism of Papilio ajax, strike me as most remarkable & interesting.3
Believe me Dear Sir | Yours very faithfully | Charles Darwin
Thanks for part nine of WHE’s [Butterflies of North America (1868–72)].
