To T. H. Huxley   14 [January 1862]


On success of THH’s Edinburgh lectures.

Agrees that THH is right that the hybrid question is a "hiatus" [in the argument for natural selection] but he overrates it. Crossed varieties frequently produce sterile offspring. On this question asks THH to read his Primula paper [Collected papers 2: 45–63]. CD suspects sterility will come to be viewed as a selected character.

To T. H. Huxley   22 January [1862]


Much amused at the Witness.

Pleased at what THH says on hybridity.

Has 16 ill in the house!
