Glad CD is pleased by his "Erasmus Darwin". Was not able to obtain book by Anna Seward [Memoirs of the life of Dr Darwin (1804)]. Could CD check relevant passages for errors? Would be great honour if CD could arrange English translation. Wants to enlarge essay into book.

From Ernst Krause   24 March 1879

Summary

Thanks for sketch of Erasmus Darwin by John Dowson [see Erasmus Darwin, p. iv]; would like to incorporate this information into MS. Previous biographers of Erasmus Darwin had insufficient knowledge of what appeared in his works.

Author:  Ernst Ludwig (Ernst) Krause
Addressee:  Charles Robert Darwin
Date:  30 Mar 1879
Classmark:  DAR 92: B21
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-11961

From Ernst Krause   5 May 1879

Summary

Sends first part of MS of Erasmus Darwin.

Has found useful criticism of Anna Seward in J. G. Lockhart’s Life of Sir Walter Scott.

CD should regard MS as a draft and correct anything that seems incorrect or questionable. Asks biographical questions about Dr Darwin. Can CD give information about origin of family name?

Author:  Ernst Ludwig (Ernst) Krause
Addressee:  Charles Robert Darwin
Date:  5 May 1879
Classmark:  DAR 92: B22–3
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12032

Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12038

From Ernst Krause   15 May 1879

Summary

Thanks for answers to questions [in 12032].

Has ordered the new book by Butler [Evolution, old and new (1879)]. It may make EK’s own essay superfluous.

Author:  Ernst Ludwig (Ernst) Krause
Addressee:  Charles Robert Darwin
Date:  15 May 1879
Classmark:  DAR 92: B26
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12053

From Ernst Krause   23 May 1879

Summary

Samuel Butler seems not even to have read works of Erasmus Darwin. Quotes only passages quoted by other authors. Thorough account now more necessary than ever.

CD’s preliminary notice should be incorporated in German edition completely unchanged, though some annotation is needed to explain matters unfamiliar to German readers.

Would like to have article by CD for Kosmos.

Addressee:  Charles Robert Darwin
Date:  23 May 1879
Classmark:  DAR 92: B28
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12060

From Ernst Krause   7 June 1879

Summary

Hopes to send last part of his work soon. CD may lay it aside or print only parts of it. Wants to add account of evolutionists before Erasmus Darwin. Superficial account by Samuel Butler makes this necessary.

Addressee:  Charles Robert Darwin
Date:  7 June 1879
Classmark:  DAR 92: B27
Letter no:  DCP-LETT-12092

From Ernst Krause   13 June 1879

Summary

Has completed his MS and sent it to Dallas.

Has ignored Butler’s criticism of natural selection and corrected only his views of Buffon and Goethe.

It would be best to drop EK’s text from book and quote only certain portions of it.

From Ernst Krause   10 July 1879

Summary

Hopes CD can excuse article he wrote in response to a review of Grant Allen’s book [The colour-sense (1879)].
