Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on 16 Sept 1873

Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Mimosa too far gone to send now. Darwin's marjoram is the common [Origanum] vulgare, not the pot herb. On the water injury, Thiselton-Dyer and he may have used too fine a spray, but plant is insensitive. Horribly angry at P. G. Tait's letter in Nature [8 (1873): 381–2]. Tyndall writes that he is strong – the next number of Nature will prove it. G. Henslow is much better. Hooker leaves for Bradford [BAAS meeting] tomorrow. Rejoices at Darwin's success with Drosera; longs to be at Nepenthes.
