Lecture VI P. 151 line 7 from top wetting feet: bodies?3
Miss Henrietta Darwin’s criticisms.—4
You here & there use Atavism=Inheritance.—5 Duchesne, who, I believe invented word in his Strawberry Book,6 confined it, as everyone else has since done, to resemblance to grandfather or more remote ancestor, in contradistinction, to resemblance to parents.—
Two criticisms (one by Henrietta Darwin) of THH’s Lectures [to working men].
