To Michael Foster   29 [June 1871]1

Down, | Beckenham, Kent. [6 Queen Anne Street, London.]

29

My dear Sir

Many many thanks for the Curare received last night.: I will be very careful not to waste it.—2 I shall not use it for about 3 weeks, when I intend leaving home for a month & will then resume my work, as an amusement, on Drosera.— I am so glad to have got the Curare. If you pay me a visit, I shall like to explain what I intend trying.— What you say, however, about Amœbæ is a damper.3

Yours gratefully | Ch. Darwin
