Darwin: Marry, Not Marry

More Darwin papers are up on the internets. Work stuff and personal stuff, including his pro-con list on getting married. Among the pros: "Constant companion, (& friend in old age) who will feel interested in one- object to be beloved & played with. — better than a dog anyhow." And the cons: "fatness & idleness — Anxiety & responsibility — less money for books".
