To Thomas Laxton   3 November [1866]

Summary

Has examined TL’s crossed peas. Observes that in several lots crossed peas are smooth, like paternal stock, not wrinkled like maternal stock. Is this a result of mere variation, peculiar culture, or pollen of the father?

Encloses queries [missing].

Intends planting peas at once if TL approves.
