From T. H. Farrer   5 June 1870

3, Gloucester Terrace, | Regent’s Park.

5 June/70

My dear Mr Darwin

I could not find any thing to send to F. Müller so I wrote him a long screed of a letter, giving the gist of my notions about the corona &c of Passiflora. I hope he wont be bored.1

Sincerely yours | T H Farrer


Fritz Müller had sent Farrer, via CD, seeds and a dried flower of Passiflora (see letter from Fritz Müller, 16 February 1870, and letter to Fritz Müller, 12 May 1870). On Farrer’s notions about the corona of Passiflora, see the letter to T. H. Farrer, 13 [May 1870], n. 3.


Has sent F. Müller "a long screed" about the Passiflora.
