Darwin Correspondence Project

From John Lubbock   12 February 1867

15, Lombard Street. E.C.

12 Feb 1867

My dear Mr. Darwin

Should you mind signing the enclosed?

I think the work Stainton has done would fully justify his election as an F.R.S.1

Yours very sincerely | John Lubbock

C. Darwin Esq


CD evidently returned the enclosure, which has not been found, to Lubbock. The entomologist Henry Tibbats Stainton became a fellow of the Royal Society of London in 1867 (DNB).


H. T. Stainton should be elected F.R.S.
