'Darwin, C. R.','Darwin, Emma'

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Health very bad. All scientific work stopped for 2½ months. E. B. Tylor's Early history of mankind 1865 impresses him. Would like Hooker's opinion of last number of Spencer's Principles of Biology vol. 1 (1864), especially on umbellifers. Darwin not satisfied with Spencer's views on irregular flowers. ED reports on Darwin's health.
