From G. H. Darwin to Emma Darwin   [before 24 November 1873]


Describes a seance attended by George Darwin and Myers.

Author:  James William Colvile

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-9157F

To J. D. Hooker   24 November 1873



Has been working hard on Mimosa albida. Could JDH ever make its opposite leaflets shut up close, as in sleep, when he irritated them? CD doubts they do, except in sleep. Thinks movement a protection against water.

Has examined only one specimen of Eucalyptus.

Cannot believe JDH’s results from cutting a hole in pitcher in his Nepenthes experiment.

Pleased that GHD will help with second edition of Descent. Cautions him not to alter strength of CD’s expression or improve the style too much.
