Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Darwin, C. R. to Hooker, J. D. on 20 Dec [1873]

Darwin, C. R.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

His indignation at the malignant, odious, hypocrite Owen's attack on Hooker. History of Secretaryship [of Royal Society in Nature 9 (1873): 129–30] was best answer to Owen. Is hard at work on new edition of Descent – a truly awful job. No use going on with experiments on effects of water on bloom-divested leaves. May have erred. Or it may be that water is only injurious when there is a good supply of actinic rays. Will wait until spring.
