Darwin, C. R. to Paget, James

29 Jan [1873?]

    Summary Add

  • +

    Has heard from Ashwin Conway Newman of Guy's Hospital of a case of a child without any prepuce whose father was a renegade, uncircumcised Jew, but whose ancestors had all been Jews. Newman thinks this a good case of inheritance with reversion. JP's letter [missing] now shows how rash such a conclusion would be.
