Summary:

JDH informs Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer [WTTD] that he will be happy to publish the Pisum, brought to his attention by [Isaac Henry] Burkill, in the BOTANICAL MAGAZINE of Apr 1900, if Miss [Matilda] Smith. JDH has written to Lord Rayleigh objecting to the building of a laboratory on a site close to the boundary wall of TBG Kew on account of the fact that it would be an eyesore for those in the Gardens. JDH recommends that Richmond & WTTD also intervene in the matter. JDH laments the death of one of his oldest friends [Sir James] Paget, he recalls botanising with him in their teens & serving as examiners together for the Army, Navy & East India Company. JDH offers to show WTTD a book of 'the pictures at Yarmouth'.

Summary:

JDH writes that he is returning an initialled 'transfer' to Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer [WTTD]. He reports that he is recovering from his illness though still unsteady on his feet & suffering with a rash. He is glad to hear WTTD has recovered from a severe chill. He worries that [Edgar William] Foster will over exert himself. JDH rejoices that the collection of [James Edward] Winterbottom has come to RBG Kew, JDH had previously tried to get it from Winterbottom's brother, whom he also spoke to about Winterbottom's neglected tomb, which JDH visited in Rhodes. [William Botting] Hemsley informed JDH of the death of [Adrien René] Franchet, a great loss for the herbarium. JDH saw the notice of [Adolf] Ernest's death in the GARDENERS' CHRONICLE. JDH is concerned for [George] Nicholson & recommends he see [Doctor Philip Henry] Pye-Smith. JDH has heard of further magnificent collections sent to RBG Kew by [Augustine] Henry.
