Darwin-Hooker Letters

Hooker recounts discussion at Royal Society over Günther's paper on distribution and affinities of gigantic tortoises ["Description of the living and extinct races of gigantic land-tortoises, Parts III and IV", Proc. R. Soc. Lond. 25 (1876–7): 506–7]. Huxley suggests they are Miocene relics. Royal Society will publish Frank's Dipsacus paper [but see 10971 and 11073]. Thiselton-Dyer will review Cross and self-fertilisation.
