Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Darwin, C. R. to Hooker, J. D. on 30 June [1866]

Darwin, C. R.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

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]. Tells Hooker of a new map of world that he might use in his lecture [on "Insular floras", BAAS, 1866, J. Bot. Br. & Foreign 5 (1867): 23–31; Gard. Chron. (1867): 6, 27, 50, 75]. Impressed by H. Spencer's last number, but each suggestion would require years of work to be of use to science.
