To Thomas Henry Huxley 10 March 1869
Down. | Bromley. | Kent. S.E.
My dear Huxley
I fear that you will hate me, but I could not bear to refuse the request in the enclosed note, coming from a man whom I much like & respect.— Accordingly I send the long letter by this day’s post, 21 pages, but in excellent hand-writing.1
Possibly, but not probably, it may be worth your while to read, before you answer all your critics, what a red-hot Comtist, lawyer & able man has to say for his prophet.—2 If you can let me have a line, saying that you will consider Vernon Lushingtons remarks & that will satisfy him.
There is no peace for the wicked or the good in this world.
Ever yours | C. Darwin
At writer’s request, forwards long letter on Comte by Vernon Lushington.
