To W. W. Baxter 4 September [1872?]1
If you chance to have any of the following Salts I shd. be much obliged if you would send me oz of each, as I want to try a little experiment with some plants.
Acetate of Ammonia
Citrate of Ammonia
Nitrate of Ammonia
Sulphate of Ammonia
Nitrate of Soda
Nitrate of Lime
I know that it is mere improbable chance whether you have any.
The Nitrate & Sulp. of Ammonia I care most about; Could you obtain them for me, as I do not know where to apply to for a small quantity, & I in fact only require a few grains.— Pray excuse my troubling you.—2
Dear Sir | Yours faithfully | C. Darwin.
P.S. ☜ | Please send 4 oz of Camphorated oil for friction of the abdomen.3
