From W. S. Dallas   19 February 1868

Summary

The Athenæum article [review of Variation, 15 Feb 1868, pp. 243–4] is a disgrace.

WSD will keep CD’s queries about Hemiptera in mind. Secondary sexual characters are certainly more marked in exotic than in British species.

Has sent his translations [of parts of Theodor Piderit, System der Mimik und Physiognomik (1867)].

Fritz Müller’s Für Darwin [1864] would sell if well translated. WSD would be glad to undertake it.
