From:  Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker
To:  Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer
Date:  15 October 1906
Classmark:  JDH/2/16 f.192, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Summary:  

JDH responds to Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer's [WTTD] account of the death of Mary Barnard, [Noel?] Barnards daughter, she died of acute diabetes. JDH is disturbed to hear that his own daughter, WTTD's wife Harriet, has a malarious fever & approves of their plan to take her to Sidmouth to recuperate. JDH mentions the Thiselton-Dyer's new home. JDH visited the new Director of RBG Kew, David Prain, & his wife. JDH found Prain is working too hard & the Department [of Agriculture & Fisheries] is asking him to do too much outside his Kew duties. JDH also went to the RBG Kew herbarium to work on Balsams, where he found out Brandis is ill. [Dietrich] Brandis is working on the anatomy of bamboo leaves. [Eduard] Strasburger has also visited Kew where he & JDH spoke about old German botanists, & Marsileas in the Berlin Gardens. Notes that it is curious, WTTD, his son George & Bentham have ended up living on a street called Lindley [John Lindley having been a prominent orchidologist who worked at Kew]. Lady Hyacinth Hooker has gout in her knee. JDH offers to send WTTD copies of the Records of the Botanical Survey of India. Something JDH wrote for the Gazetteer has finally been printed. JDH's son Brian Harvey Hodgson Hooker has secured a billet at Melbourne but JDH does not know if it is in the mining business. [William Robert] Guilfoyle was helping Brian to find work. Brian's daughter Frances has been sent to the Clemen[?] sisters.
