Darwin, C. R. to Hooker, J. D.

25 May [1870]

    Summary Add

  • +

    Concern about futures of Willy [Hooker] and Horace [Darwin].

  • +

    Henrietta [Darwin] back from Cannes.

  • +

    CD has been to Cambridge to visit Frank [Darwin]. Saw Sedgwick, who took him to the [Geological] Museum and utterly exhausted him. Humiliating to be "killed by a man of 86".

  • +

    Saw Alfred Newton.

  • +

    CD has been working away on man, to much greater length (as usual) than expected,

  • +

    and on cross- and self-fertilisation.

  • +

    Does JDH happen to have seeds of Canna warszewiczii matured in some hot country?

  • +

    Sympathises with JDH on Dawson's paper – amusing that Dawson hashes up E. D. Cope's and L. Agassiz's views.
