Septbr. 26th 1871.
My dear Sir
Before leaving town I glanced at an article by a Mr C. Wright in the North American Review.1 From the misapprehensions & misrepresentations it exhibited I did not think as would repay careful perusal but since my return I have heard that the article has been republished enlarged—& perhaps somewhat modified—so that I should like to see it and as so many of my friends have received a copy from “Down” I write to ask you if you have still got a copy to spare & if so if you will oblige me with it?2
Trusting that you are in at least as good health as when I had the pleasure of seeing you I remain | My dear Sir | Your’s very sincerely | St Geo Mivart
P.S. I hope Mr Macmillan has sent you a copy of my second Edition as I requested him to do?3
C. Darwin Esqr.
Has seen an article by Chauncey Wright ["Darwinism", North Am. Rev. 113 (1871): 63–103] and has heard it has been enlarged and reprinted . As CD has been distributing copies StGM wonders whether he might have one.
