Mr Horner’s “Account of some recent Researches near Cairo” ought, in my opinion, to be published in full in the Philosoph. Transactions.2 Considering the importance of any investigation leading to the result that Man has existed in Ægypt for between 13,000 & 14,000 years,3 I think that all the details & sections, though given with great minuteness, should be published, as possibly being hereafter of great assistance to some future investigator.
Dear Sir | Yours faithfully | Ch. Darwin To the Secy | Royal Socy —
Recommends Leonard Horner’s "Account of some recent researches near Cairo" for publication in Philosophical Transactions [R. Soc. Lond. 148 (1858): 53–9]. Believes all the details and sections should be published in full because of importance of investigations leading to the conclusion that man has existed in Egypt for over 13000 years.
