Hooker's "shock" that Darwin was awarded the Copley Medal. Oliver, Thomson and Hooker independently concur mature tendrils of Dicentra are foliar, though Hooker remembers they were axial in the spring. Expects he and Darwin were fooled, but will have to look again next spring. Praises Darwin's Lythrum paper [Collected papers 2: 106–31]. Hooker completing F. Boott's work on Carex [Illustrations of the genus Carex]. Hooker now does suspect Mrs Boott is illegitimate daughter of Dr Erasmus Darwin [see 4389].
