Darwin Correspondence Project

To B. D. Walsh   [4 December 1864?]1

My dear Sir

I was unjust to Prof. Westwood—2 If able to oblige him you can write direct to “Prof. Westwood, Oxford”


The date is conjectured from the likelihood that this letter was sent on the same day as the letter to B. D. Walsh, 4 December [1864]. See Correspondence vol. 13, letter from B. D. Walsh, 1 March 1865.
See letter from J. O. Westwood, 2 December 1864. CD evidently enclosed John Obadiah Westwood’s letter.


Correspondence: The correspondence of Charles Darwin. Edited by Frederick Burkhardt et al. 26 vols to date. Cambridge: Cambridge University Press. 1985–.


Sends J. O. Westwood’s direction.
