Darwin Correspondence Project

To T. H. Huxley   [after 20 April 1860]1


– P.S. I lost about the time when you were at Down,2 the National Review with

Carpenter’s Review.—3 Did you take it away by mistake? Hooker says he did not.—4


Dated by the relationship to the preceding letter.
Huxley and his wife Henrietta Anne Huxley had visited Down on the weekend of 7 April 1860 (Emma Darwin’s diary). Joseph Dalton Hooker was also a guest at the time.
[Carpenter] 1860a appeared in the January number of the National Review.


Asks whether THH had by mistake taken the National Review containing W. B. Carpenter’s review.
