Pence Background  /   If it could be shown that our domestic varietiesmanifested a strong tendency to reversion,—thatis, to lose their acquired characters, whilst keptunder unchanged conditions, and whilst kept in aconsiderable body, so that free intercrossingmight check, by blending together, any slightdeviations of structure, in such case, I grant thatwe could deduce nothing from domestic varietiesin regard to species.
