I have received from Messrs. Chapman and Hale a copy of your great work, "Man's Place in the Universe" and I thank you very heartily for it.
I am reading it [] with great pleasure and interest. It will, I do not doubt, mark a new -- and most significant -- departure in human thought.
I think you have to a great extent made out your case -- though for some time to come the world [] in general will hardly realise what vast issues hang upon the points raised.
One of the most original and suggestive thoughts in the volume, to me, is the idea that "any sun" would not have been equal to the [] task of presiding over the evolution of human life on our globe. That thought practically contains and clinches the whole argument.
Again thanking you, I am, my dear Sir, | very faithfully yours, | George Barlow [signature]
