    Reports on J. D. Hooker's health.


My dear Mr. Darwin

I think that Joseph progresses on the whole towards recovery—but it is certainly very slow progress, & he is very susceptible to the weather— today being very mild and damp, with heavy rain in the morning, has not suited him, & he is not quite so well— he is, however, downstairs for the first time, & sitting in the study— I hope a few days more may see us at Yarmouth—

With Joseph's love, I am | Yrs. affty | F H Hooker
