Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on 29 Oct 1872 : 128r
'Hooker, J. D.'
Sends Mrs Barber's address. Gratified that Darwin hates Owen. Hopes Owen will not answer Nature letter and draw Hooker into controversy. Owen's letter was not intended for Ayrton to use. Its appearance must have horrified him. State of Huxley's health makes Hooker uneasy. Willy is in a stockbroker's office in London and likes it.
