To P. L. Sclater 11 November 1
Down. | Beckenham | Kent. S.E.
My dear Mr. Sclater
I will most gladly accept your kindness.—2 I look at the delay caused as nothing comparatively to the great benefit.— I never expected or hoped for many criticisms, but I still hope you will point out any serious error,—whatever trouble this may cause to my Printers.— I suppose I shall soon receive Revises, but Messrs Clowes3 sometimes delay the 2d proofs till of a whole vol. is corrected in first proof.—
Mr Hudson’s paper is very interesting & it pleases me to see so staunch a hater of evolution a little staggered at the end of his paper.—4
Yours very truly obliged | Ch. Darwin
I will not now waste quite so much time in trying to find every name quoted in some book; so you will doubly help me.
Accepts PLS’s offer to read proofs of [Descent].
W. H. Hudson’s paper is interesting.
