Description: 3 pages (front and back) each measuring 7.25 x 4.5 inches, Edinburgh, October 6, 1854 -- a chatty letter to a colleague, in small part: "...Mr. Watson has presented himself and your letter, and I am in no doubt of adding him as an acceptable addition to our corps of literary priests in Edinburgh, since he has appeared at your Tuesday evening meetings. I shall introduce him to one or two friends." Faint staining, but still in very good condition.
Comments: Scottish geologist and evolutionary thinker who authored the anonymous book "Vestiges of the Natural History of Creation" in 1844, fifteen years before Darwin published "On the Origin of Species."Signed: Y
