To T. H. Huxley   30 May [1865]

Thanks for THH’s willingness to read Pangenesis MS. Thinks some such view will have to be adopted but it overthrows, in an uncomfortable manner, ordinary development.

To T. H. Huxley   12 July [1865]

Summary

Thanks THH for reading Pangenesis MS. Will read Buffon and Bonnet (as he does not want to republish their views) and will try to persuade himself not to publish.

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-4870

To T. H. Huxley   [17 July 1865]

Summary

Has read Buffon; whole pages are like his own. But CD is not converted to non-belief. There is a fundamental distinction between Pangenesis and Buffon. Fears he may not resist publishing it, but will be cautious.

Has done nothing since 1 May. Slowly getting better under Bence Jones’s diet.
