To Henry Lee   25 February [1868]


Thanks for results on sexes of trout. [See 5793.] CD is collecting information about the proportional numbers of sexes in animals.

To Henry Lee   26 November 1871


Thanks HL for his kind note, the interesting notice, & the photograph.

He has made a mistake about the Lepas. It is the L. australis that is confined to the S. Hemisphere. L. hillii is found all over the world. Refers HL to Living Cirripedia [1851].

To Henry Lee   17 December [1871]


Apologises for expressing himself stupidly [see 8086a]. He did not mean to give an opinion on what the species was, but merely referred to the range of L. australis. CD will look at specimens, but "the subject has gone much out of my mind; & my health is so weak, & I am so overwhelmed with proof-sheets & other work" that he hopes to be excused if he does not investigate the specimens closely.

To Henry Lee   23 December [1871]


"I have now looked at both lots of specimens, & I think both are the variable L. anatifera.–– I have disarticulated the right-hand scutal valve in both & the umbonal teeth are plain in both … I have hardly any doubt that both are L. anatifera.––"
