Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Darwin, C. R. to Hooker, J. D. on 26 Mar [1854]

Darwin, C. R.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Darwin welcomes the prospect of the Philosophical Club of the Royal Society as means for seeing old acquaintances and making new ones. Will try to go up to London regularly. Admits that the warning from Hooker and Asa Gray (that more harm than good will come from combat over the species issue) makes him feel "deuced uncomfortable". Reflects upon the complexity of Agassiz; how singular that a man of his eminence and immense knowledge "should write such wonderful stuff & bosh".
