[Botanical Society of London?], his granddaughter Frances Harriet Thiselton-Dyer, Harrinay[?], his children Grace Ellen Hooker & William Henslow Hooker & his cousin; botanical artist Matilda Smith. Hopefully RBG Kew Director David Prain will also attend. They will miss Harriet Thiselton-Dyer's company.

JDH reports that Sir Richard Strachey has 'come down in the world' & been forced to sell his house in Lancaster Gate & retire to Hampstead, JDH is very sad for his old, infirm friend.

JHC553
From:  Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker
To:  Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer
Date:  29 November 1907
Classmark:  JDH/2/16 f.195, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Summary:  

JDH communicates his approval of Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer's article in NATURE. He considers the 'most remarkable instance of a changed form' to be the cut-leaved bramble [blackberry] which he has observed in his own garden. He also thinks it would be interesting to study variation & mutation in Japanese Maples. JDH is suffering with bad eczema but continuing his work dissecting & sketching Balsams. He observes that they are numerous & very location specific with no species overlap between India, China & Tibet. JDH has borrowed some Balsam specimens from Leveille at Les Man herbarium, they are all different from those in the Kew & Paris herbariums but are hard to work with having been badly dries.
