Darwin, C. R. to Weir, J. J.

16 Oct 1871

    Summary Add

  • +

    Cannot accept JJW's invitation to a party. His health has been worse than usual for some months – can see no one nor can he go anywhere.

  • +

    Is preparing a cheap edition of the Origin [6th] and will answer Mivart's objections.

  • +

    CD is pleased JJW likes C. Wright's "Darwinism" [see 7940]. Huxley will publish a splendid review of it in Contemporary Review [Nov 1871].
