To W. E. Darwin 15 March 
Thanks for letter— it is splendid— pray thank Dr. De Ch cordially for me.1 He evidently belongs to that rare species, a downright good observer. I shall use almost all his letter, of course giving no names.—2 The facts are capital & very curious.— I can quite believe about rubbing thumb & finger, though that does not at present concern me much.—
I have got many facts about Savages shrugging shoulders.—3
Wants WED to thank F. de Chaumont for some valuable observations.
