  • Darwin, C. R. Oliver, Daniel …
  • r . Hildebrand pleases me by telling me that he has been repeating my experiments on Linum & has observed fertilisation of all German orchids & finds my statements correct. — But he adds that he thinks I am probably wrong about sexes of Acropera & Catasetum & I very much fear, indeed feel almost sure, that I have blundered fearfully about Acropera, & probably about Catasetum, which is horrid to think of. — I wish my Acropera would flower; I shall soon have two Catasetums in flower & must look to them. Dear Oliver | Yours very sincerely | C.  Darwin

To Daniel Oliver   28 March [1863]
