    Summary Add

  • +

    J. B. Innes is greatly obliged for JSH's letter. JSH's observation of chalk flints strikes CD as "very curious".



My dear Henslow

Pray keep Hooker's letter as long as you like, & send it, if you please, to Sir William.— Just look it over & see whether there is not some expression about his Father being angry, which might not be proper to send.— I remember in former letter his saying that he had not told his Father how ill Falconer had behaved, as it wd have vexed him.

Mr Innes, our clergyman, is greatly obliged for your most valuable letter.—

In Haste | Yours most sincerely | C. Darwin

Your observation on Chalk flint strikes me as very curious.—
