Thanks for note.

Glad DS sticks to cleavage and foliation question. Bernhard Studer one of few to take correct view on subject.

  • Darwin, C. R. Boott, Francis …
  • r . Gould at Boston, for I hear he is a very kind man & likes to assist everyone. Dr.  Gould has attended to Cirripedia more than any one else & if he grants my request, I consider it superfluous to trouble anyone else. Should this channel fail, I will not fail to remember your most kind offer. With my true thanks for all your sympathy & assistance about Chloriform— | pray believe me | Yours very sincerely | C.  Darwin

To J. E. Gray   29 August [1848]


It had been suggested to CD that JEG intended to anticipate some of his work on the Cirripedia. CD doubted this because JEG had suggested that CD commence the work and has assisted throughout; however, CD sought assurances regarding JEG’s intentions as he wished that "what little novelty there yet remained in the subject, should be the reward of my work". CD apologises for having spoken to JEG on the subject and will communicate JEG’s assurances to those who had expressed their opinions regarding JEG’s intentions.

From J. E. Gray   26 August 1848


Is sorry that any person has misunderstood his intentions. JEG read his papers on cirripedes at the Zoological Society without intending to interfere with CD’s work; he merely wished to record his old observations, made before CD commenced his study, and thought that by so doing he was helping CD. [See "Description of a new species of Anatifa" and "On Thaliella", Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond. (1848): 44.]
