Has seen an article by Chauncey Wright [“Darwinism”, North Am. Rev. 113 (1871): 63–103] and has heard it has been enlarged and reprinted . As CD has been distributing copies StGM wonders whether he might have one.

My dear Sir
Before leaving town I glanced at an article by a Mr C. Wright inthe North American Review.f1 From the misapprehensions &misrepresentations it exhibited I did not think as would repay carefulperusal but since my return I have heard that the article has beenrepublished enlarged—& perhaps somewhat modified—so that Ishould like to see it and as so many of my friends have received acopy from “Down” I write to ask you if you have still got a copy tospare & if so if you will oblige me with it?f2
Trusting that you are in at least as good health as when I had thepleasure of seeing you I remain | My dear Sir | Your’s very sincerely |St Geo Mivart
P.S. I hope Mr Macmillan has sent you a copy of my second Editionas I requested him to do?f3
