To T. H. Huxley   6 February [1862]1

Down

Feb. 6th

My dear Huxley

I return by this Post “The Week” which I have been glad to see.2

I entirely agree with all that you say in your published Letter on its excellent spirit. The writer must be a good man, whether as good a Logician as he thinks himself we at least shall doubt.

Ever yours | C. Darwin
