Darwin Correspondence Project

To Louis Bertillon   18 December 1871

The transcript of this letter is not yet available online.

Summary

Thanks for his article Valeur philosophique de l’hypothèse du transformisme (Bertillon 1870), which is very clear.

Would not himself trust so much in Agassiz’s conclusions.

Glad the essay has been published, as he believes ‘there are but few in France who admit the doctrine of evolution’.
