Nov. 22 /69
- f1 7004.f1The reference is probably to Andrew Henderson of Henderson & Son, nurserymen, 3 Wellington Road NW (Post Office London directory 1869, and R. Desmond 1994). Joseph Dalton Hooker had advised CD to obtain Lapageria rosea, the Chilean bellflower, from this nursery in his letter of 9 [March] 1864 (Correspondence vol. 12).
- f2 7004.f2CD described self-sterility in Linum in `Two forms in species of Linum'. For self-sterility in Passiflora, see Scott 1864, Munro 1868, and Correspondence vols. 10 and 11. Linum grandifolium is an error for Linum grandiflorum.
