We are now able to follow the investigation in more detail, and fully appreciate the friendly and respectful nature of the collaboration on both sides. Although Darwin was disappointed that the seeds had turned out to be varieties of common English weeds—when he had hoped for living fossils of unknown varieties—he was convinced that the long-continued vitality of seeds under certain conditions had been proved. This continued to be a subject of great interest to him, especially in his later work on the geographical distribution of plants, when he conducted numerous experiments to test the ability of seeds to germinate after long submergence in sea-water.

Has been interested in geographical distribution and would be interested to have a paper by JSH on the general character of flora of Tierra del Fuego and Patagonia.

Charles Lyell In the extensive communications network that Darwin established as he worked on the geology and zoology of the voyage a most important correspondent, both scientifically and personally, was Charles Lyell. Natural Selection Darwin is usually depicted as having been very careful to keep secret his heretical views on species, but the correpondence does not bear out this view, if what is meant is that Darwin was afraid to divulge his conviction that species had evolved.
