From H. N. Ridley   [before 28 November 1878]

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11765

To H. N. Ridley   28 November 1878

Summary

Does not think sermon by E. B. Pusey [see 11763] is worth a reply. HNR may quote CD as saying that Pusey is "mistaken in imagining that I wrote the Origin with any relation whatever to Theology". Pusey’s attack will be powerless to retard belief in evolution.
