'Darwin, C. R.'

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Sends specimens of a Tertiary sandstone from Tierra del Fuego in which there are leaves; Darwin thought they were beech. What is Hooker's opinion? Asks whether Hooker can make sense of a note on silicified wood. Has read Vestiges of creation (1844); 'his geology strikes me as bad, & his zoology far worse'. Would like to see lists of plants from Society and Sandwich Islands. Doubts Hooker's information regarding imagination of mother affecting offspring.
