To John Murray   13 July [1871]1

Down, | Beckenham, Kent.

July 13

My dear Mr Murray

Many thanks for your kind present of the Q. Review. I have read only a few pages; but I see it is a cutting article, & apparently worthy of Mr. Mivart’s skill.2

Yours sincerely | Ch. Darwin

Thanks JM for Quarterly Review. Its "cutting" article [on Descent, 131 (1871): 47–90] is worthy of Mivart’s skill.
