Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Darwin, C. R. to Hooker, J. D. on [17 Apr 1863]

Darwin, C. R.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Likes Hooker's review of Alphonse de Candolle [Mémoires et souvenirs de A. P. de Candolle (1862)]. Falconer's article on Lyell ["Primitive man. What led to the question?", Athenæum 4 Apr 1863, pp. 459–60] too severe. Darwin has written a letter to the Athenæum "to say, under the cloak of attacking Heterogeny, a word in my own defence" [Collected papers 2: 78–80]. Bates's Travels [Naturalist on the river Amazons (1863)] are excellent.
