From T. H. Huxley to G. G. Stokes   6 December 1864

Summary

He is certain he heard "expressly excluded" [of Origin from consideration in Royal Society award of Copley Medal]. Believes GGS may have inadvertently substituted "excluded" for "omitted". THH then submits his reasons for objecting to the passage as a whole even with the word "omitted".

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-4702

From T. H. Huxley to G. G. Stokes   8 December 1864

Summary

THH never imagined that "we" referred to anyone but the [Royal] Society Council. Still objects to inclusion of the passage, since "an agreement to say nothing" [about the Origin] does not justify comment on it by one party to the agreement.
