From John Lubbock 1 July 1
My dear Mr. Darwin
I return you Muller with many thanks.2 I wish I had read it before delivering my lecture on metamorphoses.3
On some points he seems to me to contradict himself, & in places his meaning is obscure, but it is certainly a remarkable memoir.
Hoping you continue to improve I remain | Yours affect | John Lubbock
C Darwin Esq
Returns [Fritz?] Müller’s work [probably Für Darwin (1864)]. It is a remarkable memoir.
