Thanks for information about Hedychium. Hopes wings of Sphinx will be found covered with pollen for that will be a fine bit of prophecy from the structure of a flower to special and new means of fertilisation. Has been at Descent so hard he has done nothing, not even H. Spencer's answer. Has not yet read Croll ["Ocean currents", London Edinburgh & Dublin Philos. Mag. 47 (1874): 94–122, 168–90]. Has heard nothing about Carter and Eozoon. Eozoon, he infers, is done for. Has read Belt [The naturalist in Nicaragua (1874)]: best of all natural history travel books. Has written to Fritz Müller about leaf-carrying ants. Hopes to resume work on Drosera.
