Summary

Hooker would be very glad to see the mountain plants Fd’AF has collected.

Hooker says huge cypress trunks have been found buried in the ground [in the Azores]; the site needs to be described and investigated. CD suggests collecting earth from same bed to see whether any seeds have remained viable.
