To T. H. Huxley 2 [February 1860]1
Down Bromley Kent
My dear Huxley
I have had this morning a letter from old Bronn (who to my astonishment seems slightly staggered by Nat. Selection)2 & he says a publisher in Stuttgart is willing to publish a Translation & that he Bronn will to certain extent superintend.3 Have you written to Kölliker:4 if not perhaps I had better close with proposal: what do you think?? if you have written, I must wait, & in this case will you kindly let me hear as soon as you hear from Kölliker.
My poor dear friend you will curse the day when you took up the “general agency” line; but really after this I will not give you any more trouble.
Yours most truly | C. Darwin
I forgot to say that if you care in least about Agassiz on Museum, you had better cut off & keep all that part & return the bit about my Book anytime.—5
Do not forget the 3 tickets for us for your lecture, & the ticket for Baily the Poulterer.—6
Old Bronn has published in the Year-Book for Mineralogy a notice of the Origin;7 & says he has himself published elsewhere a foreboding of the theory!—8
H. G. Bronn offers to superintend a German translation of Origin.
Bronn has reviewed Origin [Neues Jahrbuch für Mineralogie (1860), p. 112].
