My dear Charles

## Footnotes

1
See letter to Caroline Darwin, [7 December 1836].
2
The manuscript of the ‘Beagle’ diary has a marginal comment at the end of CD’s explanation of the formation of lagoon islands: ‘Good, but the 1st pt not quite clear’. This notation, and several others, were probably made by Hensleigh Wedgwood and not, as Nora Barlow conjectured, by Robert FitzRoy (see ‘Beagle’ diary, pp. 304 n., 317 n., 328 n., 400 n.).

## Summary

Has returned CD’s Beagle journal MS. Thinks it would be an interesting account even if they did not know CD, and that it will be successful if published; the less it is mixed up with FitzRoy’s journal, the better.

## Letter details

Letter no.
