My dear Hooker

I received your letter & the edifying pamphlet yesterday & as our carrier goes tonight I will return it & Wilkes, & your Pacific M.S. by him.

I see the Un. St. Ex. Ex. make the Sandwich Flora eminently peculiar to itself.

Your books will go by the Boat on Thursday or Friday.— I will write again in a few days

Ever Yours | C. D

    Wilkes 1845, 4: 282–3. The United States Exploring Expedition, carried out during 1838–42 under the command of Captain Charles Wilkes, surveyed the Pacific and southern oceans. The botanist was William Rich. See letter from J. D. Hooker, 30 December 1844, in which Hooker arrived at the same conclusion concerning the Sandwich Island Flora.
