Transcription

My dear Strickland

I saw Dr Andrew Smith yesterday. I find he has long felt great interest on the subject of your paper, —though from the little conversation I had with him (not being very well myself) he differs on some points from you.— Some years ago he talked with Owen & Yarrell, about the possibility of doing what you are about.— He is, as you know, working on all orders of Vertebrata, & is a thoroughily good fellow.—

If you choose to communicate with him his direction is “Fort Pitt Chatham”.—

Yours very truly | C. Darwin
