My Dear Darwin

Is not your Fertilization-Book out—or nearly?1

If not quite, can you kindly send me sheets? I want them much within 30 days.

In haste | Yours ever | Asa Gray


CD was still correcting proof-sheets of Cross and self fertilisation; it was published in December 1876 (DAR 210.11: 6).


Cross and self fertilisation: The effects of cross and self fertilisation in the vegetable kingdom. By Charles Darwin. London: John Murray. 1876.


Would like sheets of Cross and self-fertilisation if it is not already out.
