Darwin, Charles Robert

Darwin-Hooker Letters

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Has heard from B. J. Sulivan about the fossils at Gallegos, Patagonia. Would be a great haul for palaeontology if Duke of Somerset would encourage Capt. Mayne to collect them [on survey of Magellan Strait].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Tells JDH of a new map of world that he might use in his lecture [on "Insular floras", BAAS, 1866, <i>J. Bot. Br. & Foreign</i> 5 (1867): 23–31; <i>Gard. Chron.</i> (1867): 6, 27, 50, 75].</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Impressed by H. Spencer’s last number, but each suggestion would require years of work to be of use to science.</p>
