From:  Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker
To:  Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer
Date:  26 February 1905
Classmark:  JDH/2/16 f.180, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Summary:  

JDH writes to Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer [WTTD] regarding [David] Prain's selection as a Fellow of the Royal Society, he particularly mentions that Charles Darwin was impressed by Prain & advocated his selection along with JDH. JDH also secured Prain the support of [Sir Michael] Foster but [Dunkinfield Henry] Scott probably supported [Francis Wall] Oliver. JDH criticises the behaviour of [Sir Dietrich] Brandis in trying to swap Prain's candidature in favour of [Otto] Stapf adding that he has always disliked Brandis & his approach to Indian botany. JDH praises [Perceval] Landon's book LHASA & adds that he is keen to hear about the botanical collection Prain is to receive from the expedition Landon was part of, [British Military Expedition to Lhasa, Tibet 1903-1904]. JDH mentions his opinion that the Government will be scared into giving up the Tibetan pass of Chumbi which they had occupied. JDH also reflects on the life of Dufferin [Frederick Hamilton-Temple-Blackwood, 1st Marquess of Dufferin and Ava] whose biography he is reading. He recommends WTTD read THE NORTHWESTERN PROVINCES OF INDIA by W. Crooker, 1897, & THE POET GRAY AS A NATURALIST BY edited by [Charles Eliot] Norton. JDH also mentions Algernon Bertam Freeman-Mitford's speech & photographing a sketch of David Douglas for the 'young mens' reading room'. He reports that [George] King's work on Effuseae is slow & he is seeking advice from Genoa.

From:  Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker
To:  Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer
Date:  4 July 1905
Classmark:  JDH/2/16 f.181, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Summary:  

JDH writes to Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer [WTTD] concerned about his health. JDH believes that WTTD has overworked himself and needs relief. JDH understands that Sir David Prain might be employed should the Secretary of State for India allow it and JDH asks if he can be of any help by giving the Secretary of the Board of Agriculture his point of view on the matter. JDH says that he would assure the Secretary that he was working for the interests of Kew as much as for a family member [i.e. his son in law WTTD]. Advises WTTD to go to the Ferns to await developments, which JDH will advise him of by telegraph.

Date:  11 August 1905
Classmark:  JDH/2/16 f.182, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Summary:  

JDH was not able to get to Kew the day before. James Bryce attended & was keen to do as much as possible for RBG Kew and for Sir David Prain. JDH talks about his dislike for the government & the political parties. He says politicians have to be persuaded to vote, whilst they are having long tea parties on the terrace for the ladies. He believes the Parliament is demoralised. Bryce agreed. JDH informs Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer that Mrs Sabina Paisley's cousin a General Smith lives near Cheltenham & wishes to make WTTD & Harriet's acquaintance. A Captain Smith, formerly of the Indian army Transport Corps, is being invited to Sunningdale to meet with JDH's son, Joseph Symonds Hooker. JDH is working again on the Chinese Balsams.
