Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Darwin, C. R. to Hooker, J. D. on 30 May [1862]

Darwin, C. R.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Has received Melastoma and Vanilla. Has seen again the two sets of plants of Heterocentron raised from two lots of pollen from same flower – a marvellous difference in stature. "But oh Lord what will become of my book on variation: I am involved in a multiplicity of experiments." Observations on Viola. Darwin's fancied dimorphism of Oxalis is all a confounded mistake; only great variability in length of pistils. Found Henslow's life [L. Jenyns, Memoir of the Rev. J. S. Henslow (1862)] interesting but fears the public will think it dull.
