From G. G. Stokes to T. H. Huxley   5 December 1864

Summary

Wishes to correct an expression in his last letter which is "perhaps not rigorously exact": he should not have said "declining to honour it [the Origin] with the Copley Medal" but simply "not honouring it with the Copley medal". "Declining implies having been asked and there was no asking in the present case."

From T. H. Huxley   28 June 1881
