Darwin-Hooker Letters

Reception of Scott's paper. Difficulty of writing Boott's obituary. Critical of Edward Frankland's glacial theory. Falconer's and Ramsay's views on Himalayan lakes lack support of basic evidence. Taxonomic distribution of climbing plants. Huxley picks quarrels with minor figures and thus magnifies them.
