To Edward Sabine   4 December [1864]


Thanks ES for his "splendid eulogium" [in Presidential Address to Royal Society on award of Copley Medal]. CD would have liked him to have said "a little more" about Origin.

CD feels no doubt about natural selection. Has heard from Germany of "a string of excellent men" who accept it.
