From W. S. Dallas 6 February 1868
Yorkshire Philosophical Society | York
6 February 1868.
My dear Sir
The Hon. Secretary of the Y.P.S. sent me the enclosed letter to forward to you as he did not know your address.— I hope you will honour us by accepting the position.—1
I am so much out of the world here that I have neither seen nor heard anything of your book, but I suppose it has been cast upon the waters long since.— I have heard nothing yet from Mr. Murray.—2
Believe me | Your’s always truly | W. S. Dallas.
C. Darwin Esq. F.R.S.
Forwards a letter from Secretary of Yorkshire Philosophical Society. Hopes CD will honour them by accepting.
Has heard nothing of Variation.
