My dear Sir

Will you be so kind as to have author’s spare copies of F. Müllers paper on Climbing Plants sent here to me that I may forward them to him2

Yours very faithfully | Ch. Darwin


The year is established by the relationship between this letter and the letter to Fritz Müller, [before 10 December 1866].
The reference is to Fritz Müller and F. Müller 1865b (the paper is also reproduced in Correspondence vol. 13 as the letter from Fritz Müller, [12 and 31 August, and 10 October 1865]).


Correspondence: The correspondence of Charles Darwin. Edited by Frederick Burkhardt et al. 29 vols to date. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 1985–.


Asks to have author’s spare copies of F. Müller’s article on climbing plants [J. Linn. Soc. Lond. (Bot.) 9 (1867): 344] sent to him for forwarding to FM.
