    Summary Add

  • +

    Likes GHD's article ["Professor Whitney on the origin of language", Contemp. Rev. (1874): 894]. "You have defended me nobly."



Thursday night

I have just finished your article & it seems to me very good indeed & I have read it with great interest— I saw only one or two trifling points of arrangement which I think might have been better. Perhaps others may not care so much as I do about the subject, but I shall be surprised if any one, who does care at all, does not like your article much.— You have defended me nobly—

Yours | C. D.

I like it much too E. D.—
