From J. V. Carus   17 March 1868

Summary

Some questions on errata in second English issue of Variation.

Sends a paper by Robert Hartmann on domestic animals of the countries bordering the Nile ["Geographische Verbreitung der im nordöstlichen Afrika wild lebenden Säugethiere" Z. Ges. Erdkd. Berlin 3 (1868): 28–69, 232–70, 345–68, 404–20].

Has thought much about CD’s theory of Pangenesis. It "seems rather a little too complicated … as a molecular theory".

Summary

Corrections for German translation of Variation.

Discusses Pangenesis. CD not surprised at JVC’s unfavourable opinion. Huxley’s joke that it is more difficult to believe than Genesis. Lyell’s and Sir H. Holland’s opinions. For CD, it provides a bond for connecting many phenomena.
