Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on 22 July 1874

Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Stupefied by Darwin's trouble and kindness. All he wanted for Belfast meeting was assurance that mention of published work on Drosera, etc., in Nature, etc., would not interfere with Darwin's book. Would like his Nepenthes results to go to Darwin or to Royal Society, but prefers Darwin take them. Cephalotus very puzzling. Peas and cabbage grow twice as fast after two days' immersion in Nepenthes as when placed in distilled water, but four days' immersion seems to kill them. Has a splendid Australian Drosera twice as big as D. rotundifolia.
