To James Samuelson 12 October 1
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear Sir
I am much obliged for your kind present of Vol IV of the Q. Journal of Science, which I received this morning with a note from Messrs Churchill.2
I have not hitherto taken in this journal, though I have occasionally procured numbers & read various articles with much interest, because I already take in so many periodicals that I am much in arrear in reading them. I have however just got & read the last No. with Mr Wallace’s really admirable article.3 He is a master of clear argument.
Believe me my dear Sir | yours truly obliged | Charles Darwin
Thanks for Quarterly Journal of Science 4 (1867). Has just read Wallace’s admirable article in last number ["Creation by law", Q. J. Sci. 4 (1867): 471–88]. He is a master of clear argument.
