To T. H. Huxley [after 12 January 1875]1
P.S. As I thought it would be most disagreeable to meet Mr. Mivart in London, without a clear understanding of the terms on which we are to stand, I have written him a formal letter, stating his grave offences, and saying that I should never hold any communication with him for the future, and signing “your obedient servant”2
CD has written to Mivart to say that he will never hold any communication with him in future.
