Re: The Two MRS. DARWINs

I would describe MRS. GEORGE DARWIN as a warm white self (that is, white with a
slight yellow tone), and MRS. HORACE DARWIN as a cool white self (a white with a
slight blue tone).  These types are most easily distinguished in bud or freshly
unfurled flowers, before they fade toward white. 

But someone else will have to tackle the question of whether they have
distinguishing haft marks.
