Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Did not intend to imply that Hallett said variation stopped, but that it arrives at a point where further accumulation in direction sought is so slow as to result practically in fixity of type – but not absolute fixity. Duke of Argyll has requested Hooker to superintend publication of a flora of India. Hooker thinks he [Argyll] is paying him off for his kick at natural theology. Willy [Hooker] returning from New Zealand. A unique character in Drosophyllum. Sees no reason for Darwin to contribute to Ross and Faraday memorials.
