To Ernst Krause   9 March 1879

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11920

To Ernst Krause   14 March 1879

Summary

Pleased to hear that EK agrees to CD’s request to have article on Erasmus Darwin translated. Will wait for EK’s enlargement. Has decided submission to Fortnightly Review would be useless.

Warns against Anna Seward’s biography of Dr Darwin.

Date:  14 Mar 1879
Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36176)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11932

To Ernst Krause   19 March 1879

Summary

Sends copy of a lecture [by John Dowson, see 11949] published in 1861.

Has not yet found a copy of Anna Seward’s biography for EK. It is a wretched, inaccurate book. To contradict Anna Seward’s version, CD intends to write a short preface to the translation of EK’s essay. Doubts that it will be worth translating into German.

Date:  19 Mar 1879
Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36177)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11944

To Ernst Krause   27 March 1879

Summary

CD has written to members of the family for Dr Erasmus Darwin materials and letters. Is apprehensive lest his preface and EK’s essay interfere with one another. Will confine himself to ED’s character and letters;

has begun investigating the influence he had on medical practice.

Author:  Charles Robert Darwin
Addressee:  Ernst Ludwig (Ernst) Krause
Date:  27 Mar 1879
Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36178)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11958

To Ernst Krause   2 April 1879

Summary

CD agrees entirely with EK’s proposal. Has collected a good deal of material. Useless to hunt for correspondence between Dr Darwin and Samuel Johnson. They met only once and hated one another. Dr Darwin is said to have taken Henry Brooke, who published a poem entitled "Universal beauty", as a model.

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11969

To Ernst Krause   5 [May] 1879

Summary

Thinks it better to send proofs of his preface [to Erasmus Darwin] rather than MS – he always corrects proofs heavily. Doubts that it is worth translating into German – it is written for the English public. Supposes EK will not object to a French translation and an American edition of the little book. Has written a dozen pages during a break

in his experimental work [on movement of plants].

Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36180)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11978

To Ernst Krause   2 May 1879

Summary

CD is leaving home for three weeks’ rest. If EK finishes his life of Dr Darwin while CD is away, asks him to send the MS to W. S. Dallas for translation. CD will begin his preface, but needs rest and will not do much until he returns.

Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36181)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12024

To Ernst Krause   9 May [1879]

Summary

Answers EK’s queries about Erasmus Darwin’s friends and relations. Will rectify Anna Seward’s false account of Dr Darwin’s conduct. Advises EK to leave to him the account of the Darwin family. Declines EK’s offer to allow CD to alter his MS. Fears repetition in the two essays. They can judge how best to present the material when they have seen each other’s manuscripts.

To Ernst Krause   13 May 1879

Summary

Assures EK he will lose no time in writing his essay [on Erasmus Darwin].

A book by Samuel Butler on Erasmus Darwin and Lamarck has been announced [Evolution, old and new (1879)]. Will have a copy sent to EK.

Addressee:  Ernst Ludwig (Ernst) Krause
Date:  13 May 1879
Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36183)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12051

To Ernst Krause   14 May 1879

Summary

Assures EK that he will not change his mind about publishing a translation of EK’s article on Erasmus Darwin. It is unfortunate that Samuel Butler should have published [Evolution, old and new] just then, but that does not change CD’s determination.

Butler is clever, but knows no science. His views that cells have memory and the power of wishing – even if correct – cannot explain how they could change themselves chemically or structurally.

EK can do anything he likes with CD’s preface [to Erasmus Darwin].

To Ernst Krause   27 May 1879

Summary

CD’s preface [for Erasmus Darwin] is delayed by his sitting for a portrait.

Explains to EK why he feels unable to contribute articles to Kosmos.

To Ernst Krause   5 June 1879

Summary

Has read Dallas’ translation of first part of EK’s essay [on Erasmus Darwin]. Has sent his MS to printer. Is perplexed by duplication. Thinks EK’s essay is better than his. Wishes he had sent all his material to him for a single biography. Best plan may be for EK to incorporate whatever he thinks useful in CD’s material.

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12087

To Ernst Krause   9 June [1879]

Summary

CD is glad to hear that EK plans a short historical discussion on evolution [in Erasmus Darwin],

but hopes he will not spend much powder and shot on Butler – his ephemeral work is not worth it. Sends a review [of Evolution, old and new].

Date:  9 June [1879]
Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36187)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12096

To Ernst Krause   16 June [1879]

Summary

CD will attend to ELK’s suggestions, but there is plenty of time, because Dallas translates slowly and Murray will not publish the book before November.

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12111G

To Ernst Krause   7 July 1879

Summary

Sends proofs of his preface [to EK’s Erasmus Darwin], with which he is disappointed. Suggests additions and improvements he would like to make.

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12136

To Ernst Krause   12 July [1879]

Summary

Relieved to hear that EK approves of his notice [preface for Erasmus Darwin]. Is reflecting on idea that it might appear after EK’s article as "an additional or supplementary notice".

Grieved to hear that Grant Allen has been accused of plagiarism.

Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36189)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12150

To Ernst Krause   18 July [1879]

Summary

Is inclined to publish his "notice" after EK’s text in Erasmus Darwin. May condense and alter it, so EK should not translate yet. As soon as Dallas finishes translating EK’s text, CD will set to work. Thinks EK’s article more interesting than what he has written.

Classmark:  The Huntington Library (HM 36190)
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12164

To Ernst Krause   13 August 1879

Summary

CD regrets that he feels large parts of Krause’s essay [on Erasmus Darwin] must be omitted. Gives his criticisms and his plan for condensed publication of his own article, with only parts of EK’s. If EK is unwilling to change, CD will publish his article privately. It is manifest that EK can publish his essay in its extended form in Germany if he wishes to do so.
