Correspondence from Charles Darwin to Adam Sedgwick June 1, (1870) & from Adam Sedgwick to Lady Hooker, November 24, 1868 1868, 1870

Scope and Contents

1) Letter from Darwin to Sedgwick with photo reproductions of pages two and three (probably used for publication).
"June 1
Down. Beckenham [Bromley crossed out] Kent. S.E.
My dear Professor Sedgwick, I must write a line to thank you very much for the present of your last writing. What I said in my last note was exactly true: I felt your manner towards myself & family extraordinarily kind, & I have not often in my life been more gratified. Walking round the museum, after conversing with you, tired me a good deal, for I am knocked up with incredible ease; but I was quite right again next morning. I shall always look back with great satisfaction to my last visit (as it will probably prove) to Cambridge. — I hope that you will feel strong, so as to enjoy to a certain extent your visit to your old home. - With the most sincere respect, believe me Yours truly obliged Charles Darwin"
as transcribed here: Darwin Correspondence Project, “Letter no. 7213F,” accessed on 17 January 2019, http://www.darwinproject.ac.uk/DCP-LETT-7213F Also published in "The Correspondence of Charles Darwin, vol. 18" Source credited is Stephen Jay Gould's private collection.
2) Letter from Adam Sedgwick to Lady (Frances Harriet) Hooker accompanied by letter to SJG from dealer Wilbur L. Norman with approximate transcription, annotated probably by Gould.
"Cambridge November 24, 1868 My Dear Lady Hooker, I have for several years given my votes to my Niece [Isabella Sedgwick]- who lives in Laycliffe near Settle. She is my conscience keeper; & I fear that she is engaged two or three deep: but I will enclose your case & note to her the next time I write; which I do very frequently. I declare! on looking again at the note I find that it is dated Kew & that it must have been written by my very dear friend (one called Fanny Henslow). This will give me a double notice for urging the case. But Isabella can not do an impossibility & I fear that it is almost hopeless to think of securing her vote. My knee is nearly well, & I am flourishing away in my 51st annual course of lectures! But I had one of my old & dreaded attacks of vertigo on Sunday last. May God bless you & all those you best love which will of course include the Doctor [Joseph Dalton Hooker] & your little ones. Every affectionately yours, A. Sedgwick"
