# From J. D. Hooker   [22 August 1873]1

Royal Gardens Kew

Friday.

Dear Darwin

I will come to Orpington by the usual train—that which leaves Victoria-station at 5o/c2 As I shall take a handbag only (trusting that you have not distinguished company) you must not take any trouble about sending to meet me.

Ever yours | J D Hooker
