From John Lubbock 28 September 1
Dear Mr. Darwin
I return you with many thanks Haliburtons ingenious paper, & send you a paper which gives almost at full length something of my own which is partly in answer to it.2
Will you kindly return me the newspaper.
I hope you have been pretty well & that the Book is making satisfactory progress.3
We had a capital meeting at Dundee & I have been since in the Orkneys & Shetlands.4
Ever | Yours affecy | John Lubbock
C Darwin Esq
Returns R. G. Haliburton’s paper ["The unity of the human race proved by the universality of certain superstitions connected with sneezing", reprinted in New materials for the history of man (1863)] and sends one of his own partly in answer to it ["The early condition of man", Anthropol. Rev. 6 (1868): 1–14].
Capital BAAS meeting at Dundee.
