To J. E. Taylor 13 January 1
Down, | Beckenham, Kent.
I am very much obliged to you for your kindness in having sent me your article in the Westminster Review, which I have read with great interest.2 I am also obliged for the manner in which you notice my work.—3 At present natural selection is somewhat under a cloud, but I feel the most entire conviction that it will presently be resuscitated.—
Dear Sir | Yours faithfully & obliged | Ch. Darwin
Thanks for sending his article in the Westminster Review [n.s. 41 (1872): 28–49] and the notice of CD’s work.
Natural selection is under a cloud at present, but CD expects that it will be resuscitated.
