To Edward Cresy 26 [December 1843 – April 1846 or September 1855 – October 1860?]1
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.2 He says he has been so overwhelmed with work, that he really could not write before.
In Haste, | Yours sincerely, | C. Darwin.
