Darwin Correspondence Project

To John Fiske   21 October [1875]

Many thanks for excellent notice of C. Wright.—1 Will you think me unreasonable for asking of a copy of the Nation with “Darwinism in Germany”?2

C. Darwin

Down, Beckenham, Kent

Oct. 21st.

Footnotes

Fiske probably sent the obituary that had appeared in Nation, 23 September 1875 ([James] 1875). It mentioned Wright’s recent review article (see n. 2, below).
Wright’s article, ‘German Darwinism’ (C. Wright 1875) appeared in Nation, 9 September 1875. See also letter to C. E. Norton, 7 October 1875.
