Darwin-Hooker Letters

Thanks Hooker for response on variation. Studying variations that seem correlated with environment, e.g., north vs south, ascending mountains. Darwin's weed garden: observations on slugs killing seedlings. Seed-salting. One-seventh of the plants of any country could be transported 924 miles by sea and would germinate.
