From E. A. Darwin to Hugh Falconer   2 July 1864

6, Queen Anne St

July 2, 1864

Dear Dr. Falconer

I enclose Charles’ letter to me and his list of works.1 I think this answers all the questions that you asked, and I am quite surprised to see how many papers he has published. I leave this on my way to the railway going out of town, but shall be happy to make any farther inquiries that may occur to you.

Believe me | Yours very truly | Eras Darwin


See letter to E. A. Darwin, 30 June 1864; the list appears as an enclosure to this letter. See also letter from E. A. Darwin, 27 June [1864]. Falconer had seconded the nomination of CD for the Copley Medal at the meeting of the Royal Society, 23 June 1864 (Royal Society, Council minutes).


Encloses list of CD’s publications.
