Dear Prof. Haeckel,
Since visiting you last year especially, yet always having had an intense admiration for your scientific achievements, I could not but otherwise object to such carping criticism of your veracity with regard to anthropological diagrams etc.
Enclosed is a cutting from the „Morning Leader” of May 30th, and also two || issues of the „Advocate”. The latter are publications issued for the benefit of Christians in the Central Telegraph Office, and as I come in contact with the Editor and thousands of his readers, I feel it to be grossly wrong to let such literature pass unchallenged.
If you are not leaving Jena yet for holidays, and would not feel that an answer to some of these criticisms, especially those in the „Advocate”, is too great a strain, I should regard it as a great favour. ||
Personally I am fully cognisant of your great age, and therefore understand what this will mean to you. I shall await a reply with expectation.
With the greatest respect I send my greatings.
Yours very sincerely
