My dear Mr Darwin
By the last Australian mail I received another budget of black fellows “emotions”, which I now enclose to you.1 The purport of them seems to be that the manifestations of emotions are usually spontaneous & to a great extent uniform in spite of the vigorous shrugs of our friend the Frenchman
I am glad you were pleased with those last sent. My relatives address is Dyson Lacy Esq
〈 〉 writes that he has read your last book with the greatest pleasure & profit.3 Let your labours be cheered therefore with the reflection that your teaching soon reaches, & influences, even distant Aramac
I still hope for further observations on your queries from South Australia to which they were sent under good auspices but there seems to have been a little delay
With kind regards to Mrs Darwin & yr family I am Dear Sir | Yours very truly | Edw Wilson
Encloses further replies from Australia to CD’s queries on expression. Wilson’s letter to CD enclosed the letter from Smyth with its enclosures (see S6314).
