To J. D. Hooker   [22 April 1866]

My dear Hooker

Many thanks about New Zealand Flora,1 received just as we were coming here for a week.—2

If Mrs Hooker or yourself are in London, we hope much that you will call, but you must not of course think for a moment of coming on purpose; though of course we shd. only be too glad to see Mrs. Hooker or both—3

Ever yours | C. Darwin
