  • Darwin, C. R. Hooker, J. D. …
  • r P.  Rohrbach on Epipogium, Göttingen 1866. I have both these papers & c d find them with some little trouble; & when in 3 months time I class all my pamphlets I shall certainly come across them; I will however with the greatest pleasure hunt for them now if wanted. Our London visit was very prosperous in all ways, except in missing Kew. I am now getting my M.S.  ready to send to the printers yours affectionately. | Ch. Darwin

From Camille Dareste   2 July 1870


Has found a remarkable anatomical character in the niata skull of which he wrote [see 5540]. Asks whether the skull CD brought from South America [at the Royal College of Surgeons] shows the same character. If so, it would provide incontestable evidence of the origin of this race of cattle.
