To W. W. Bailey   10 December [1877]

Many thanks for the specimens which will be very useful whenever a new Edition is required.1

C. Darwin

Down, Beckenham, Kent | Dec. 10th

Footnotes

Bailey had sent CD specimens of Bouvardia leiantha (see letter from W. W. Bailey, [November 1877] and n. 3). In Forms of flowers 2d ed., p. vii, CD noted that the specimens sent by Bailey were clearly heterostyled, but that no difference could be detected in the size of the pollen-grains.
