[Charles DARWIN]. Alexis GIRAUD-TEULON. Autograph note signed "A.G.T.". ½ p. in-8. La Navarre, March 1907. "I received from Ch. Darwin another letter in which he announced the sending of his book The Descent of man, and in which he discussed my theory of promiscuity which he had difficulty in admitting. According to him, humanity had begun with small family groups like monogamous apes. I put this letter in the cover of the book I sent and I can't find the letter or the book. I have a confused memory of having lent it, but to whom? to H. de Saussure. To Alph. de Candolle? It is impossible for me to remember it after 30 years and more, it is upsetting.
