To Frederic William Farrar   11 October [1865]

Summary

Thanks for book on language [Chapters on language (1865)], which he hopes to read soon if his weak health permits.

To F. W. Farrar   2 November [1865]

Summary

Has enjoyed FWF’s volume [Chapters on language]. Had found Max Müller’s theory obscure and weak.

Believes FWF would come to agree with him on species if he studied general questions in natural history. To argue for immutability of species on the basis of geology resembles a wise savage in a nation with no books saying his language has never changed.
