From Emma Darwin to John Scott 9 January 1864
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
Jan 9 1864
Mr Darwin I am sorry to say is quite unable to look over your paper.1 He desires me to say however that he is convinced that is it is entirely fit for publication & will prove most valuable.
He has withdrawn your observations addressed to him & only waits your further consent to send it on just as it is.2
He will speak to the Secretary in order that you may have the proof sheets to correct for yourself.3
I am with Mr Darwins kinds regards | yours truly | Emma Darwin
Mr Darwin begs me to tell you that tho’ worse in health than when he wrote before he hopes that in time he will regain his usual state.4
CD thinks JS’s Primula paper is fit for publication; he will send it on to the Linnean Society.
