Thanks for seeds of Clitoria mariana the roots sent before arrived quite dry & dead. These seeds seem so good they are sure to grow. I am glad to say I am getting near [the] end of my new book on "Darwinism" & have been using your papers on Palaeobotany for a sketch of that subject as illustrating the evolution of plants.
Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
