To J. D. Hooker 3 October 
My dear Hooker
As you asked about the Reader I have thought that you wd like to see the enclosed letter which please return some time1 When you feel strong enough to read a moderately long letter accompanied with beautiful drawings by Fritz Müller in Brazil on certain climbing plants I shall beg you to read it, for I am in utter perplexity whether it is worth communicating to Linn. Soc.2 The chief point of interest is, it describes a sub-division of which I saw no instances namely branches being converted into tendrils, but there is of course no sort of hurry. I feel that I am not botanist enough to judge whether it is worth communicating.
Before very long let us hear how you go on. yours very affectionately | C. Darwin
