My dear Sir/
I have looked over Müller’s paper & return it by this post.1 It will be an interesting thing for an evening Meeting.—2 I have corrected his bracteæ,3 &—assisted by Mr Bentham4—the haziness of the paragraph about upwards & downwards, &c.5 Dr. Hooker returns on Thursday— I have a note this morning. He does not lose the stiffness in his joints yet.—6
The scrap of Strychnos cannot be named with any certainty.7 Young shoots are often so different from those on the flowering branch
Ever very sincerely yrs | D Oliver
Returns a paper which he has looked over.
Cannot name the scrap of Strychnos with any certainty.
