From Daniel Oliver 14 May 1862
14. May 1862
My dear Sir
I must not defer thanking you for your very kind present,—sent me by post from Mr. Murray’s—1 I received it this morning that I have only had time to look over it. It is a very extraordinary book!— Your late publications must surely give quite a new & most promising direction to our studies. I am just now, you know, busy with my Class that I have very little time to spare, but shall not fail to inform them of your general results.2
With many thanks | Yours very truly | Danl: Oliver
Thanks for Orchids.
