Letter 8724

Darwin, C. R. to Galton, Francis

4 Jan [1873]


Comments on FG’s article ["Hereditary improvement", Fraser’s Mag. 87 (1873): 116–30]. Finds it “the sole feasible, yet I fear utopian, plan of procedure in improving the human race”.

Thanks for rabbits for Balfour.

Mentions reading W. R. Greg’s Enigmas [of life (1872)].
