Says Hooker does not want plant.
Down, Bromley, Kent.
My dear Sir,
In answer to 2 or 3 letters of mine I heard only this morning from Dr. Hooker, who desires me to thank you particularly for offer of plant, but they do not want any.f2 He says he has been so overwhelmed with work, that he really could not write before.
In Haste, | Yours sincerely, | C. Darwin.
