Charles Darwin an Ernst Haeckel, Down, 9. Februar 1881
DOWN. | BECKENHAM.
My dear Haeckel,
Will you forgive me for troubling you on a subject in which you can help me? My son Francis, who works with me, wants to get a microscope from Zeiss. Will you therefore be so kind as to call on Zeiss and see that he really send good || lenses.
On the blank sheet opposite is a list of the “Stativ”, objectives and other things which my son wishes to have. He will send the money to Zeiss a as soon as the latter will let him know that the microscope can be sent off. I received a few weeks ago two additional parts of your magnificent work on the Medusæ for which I am very much obliged
My dear Haeckel
Yours very sincerely
