Darwin had written to Harcourt on 19 August 1856 asking to borrow his copy of Christian Ludwig Brehm's work on German ornithology, as he wanted “to see how far Brehm goes in splitting species”. Earlier in the year they had corresponded about Madeiran birds, on which Harcourt was an expert (Harcourt is referenced on p.391 of the Origin).
