Has received CD's new book [Descent].
Will try to get answer to CD's queries on Laura Bridgman.
My Dear Darwin
It is very good of you to send me, and so kindly address, a copy of your new book,—which safely reached me two days ago. I have not yet had time to read any of it, except the preface and the ending; and I do not like to dip into it and so blunt the edge of curiosity, so I keep it well out of sight,—not caring to look just yet at any of the pages which you think likely to ``aggravate'' me; until some day I can get a good pull at it.
Now as to your request in letter of Feb. 5.— question on expression
as to Laura Bridgman. D
Wyman is away, in Florida, getting rid of winter and cough,—with good success, I hear.
March 14. Nothing yet from Mrs. Howe. But I hear that
My wife joins in best remembrances to you and yours. She is not very well and we are both over-busy.
Sincerely yours, | Asa Gray
