To Richard Owen   11 November [1859]

Summary

Has asked his publisher to send a copy of Origin. Fears it will be "an abomination" in RO’s eyes. Urges him to read it straight through, as it is a condensed abstract and will otherwise be unintelligible.

From Richard Owen   12 November 1859

Summary

Will welcome CD’s work [Origin] with a "close & continuous perusal".

Believes in the "operation of existing influences or causes in the ordained becoming and incoming of living species" and so could not regard CD’s attempt to demonstrate the nature of such influences as "heterodox".
