Charles Darwin autograph letter signed with evolution related content written shortly after ''On the Origin of Species'' was published. Dated 16 August (1860 or 1861), Darwin writes to his second cousin William Darwin Fox, who introduced Charles Darwin to entomology. Upon Down, Kent stationery, Darwin writes in part, ''...you had seen a dozen instances of white cats with blue eyes being deaf: how can you by an extraordinary chance remember the sex of any of them...C. Darwin''. Fox's reply to Darwin, giving additional details on the white, blue-eyed, blind cats, is archived in the Darwin Correspondence Project. Single page letter measures 5'' x 8'', with an engraving of Darwin measuring 5.5'' x 8''. Uniform toning, mounting tape remnants and writing at top not in Darwin's hand, overall very good condition.
