From St G. J. Mivart 19 January 1871
7, North Bank, | N.W.
Jany 19th 1871
My dear Sir
Many thanks— I am much vexed that you have not already received a copy of my little book which only an accident has prevented & I went yesterday to direct its being sent off forthwith.1
I trust that you will not think that I have said a word in it of opposition to you beyond what my view of the truth necessitates and I trust also that where I have been obliged to dissent my expressions have not been inconsistent with those sentiments of personal esteem & regard for you—
with which I am | My dear Sir | Your’s most truly | St. G. Mivart.
To | Charles Darwin Esq.
Has sent CD his book [Genesis of species (1871)]. Has not said a word in opposition to CD except where his view of the truth necessitated it.
