Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on [15 and] 20 Nov [1862]

Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Sends Darwin West Ireland soundings. More detail on his review "a la Lindley" [see 3797]. Bates's paper ["Contributions to an insect fauna of the Amazon valley", Trans. Linn. Soc. Lond. 23 (1862): 495–566] is capital. Andrew Murray's article plays into Darwin's hands through sheer ignorance. Hooker is on Royal Society Council. Has no recollection of applying natural selection to Polynesians. None but a German would dig out such a passage if it exists [see 3812]. Has caused Tyndall to modify his pseudo-geology. Has not seen Duke of Argyll's review [Edinburgh Rev. 116 (1862): 378–97]. [The Duke] did not understand Orchids the least little bit, nor the Origin, when Hooker saw him.
