He wanted to behave honorably in this matter but in doing so he might lose credit for 20 years of painstaking work. Darwin’s terrible dilemma is played out in the letters that follow.

Darwin to Charles Lyell, June 18, 1858 Some year or so ago you recommended me to read a paper by Wallace in the Annals,6 which had interested you, and, as I was writing to him, I knew this would please him much, so I told him. He has to-day sent me the enclosed, and asked me to forward it to you. It seems to me well worth reading. Your words have come true with a vengeance – that I should be forestalled. You said this, when I explained to you here very briefly my views of Natural Selection depending on the struggle for existence.
