Darwin-Hooker Letters : Letter from Hooker, J. D. to Darwin, C. R. on [23? Sept 1873]

Hooker, J. D.

Darwin-Hooker Letters

Thanks for C. E. Norton's address. Tyndall's answer [Nature 8 (1873): 399] has surprised and disappointed him; great trouble in announcing Tyndall's election as President Elect [of BAAS] yesterday. Tyndall may throw up the Presidency. Spottiswoode and Hooker have concocted a letter telling him the facts. A very poor dull meeting. Comments on papers by W. C. Williamson, Clerk Maxwell, David Ferrier, Burdon Sanderson [Rep. BAAS 43: lxx–xci, 23–32, 126–7, 131–3]. Has heard Huxley is back quite well.
