To T. H. Huxley 30 April 1
My dear Huxley
It is late at night & I have this minute finished your Address to Geolog. Socy. & I must just thank you for sending it me.—2 I have read it with uncommon interest. It is a wonderful condensed & original summary on Palæontology, & I should think & hope will do much good.— I hope you are not killing yourself with too much work—
Good night— | yours very sincerely | C. Darwin
Thinks THH’s [Anniversary] Address [to Geological Society, Feb 1862, Q. J. Geol. Soc. Lond. 18 (1862): xl–liv] a wonderful condensed and original summary of palaeontology.
