Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Darwin, C. R. to Hooker, J. D. on 23 Sept [1864]

Darwin, C. R.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Pleased with news of BAAS meeting and Scott's possible position as Thomas Anderson's curator. Suggests Wallace is due for a Royal Medal. Agrees with Hooker's criticism of Lyell's address [see 4614]. Bentham's Linnean Society address treats continuity of life in a vague non-natural sense. Rereading his old MS [Natural selection] Darwin is impressed with work he had already done. Writing Variation much harder than Climbing plants. Encloses request to Hooker to propose, or suggest on his behalf, that the Ray Society publish a translation of C. F. von Gärtner's Versuche und Beobachtungen über die Bastarderzeugung im Pflanzenreich (1849).
