Classmark:  JDH/1/9 f.740, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Summary:  

JDH writes to Otto Stapf regarding the distribution of copies of an article being reprinted. JDH would like to know which institutions receive the reprint, also who received copies of his illustrations of Impatiens from the ICONES [PLANANTARUM]. JDH wants Indo Chinese specimens from Stapf as soon as possible so he can revise his articles on Indian Balsams. JDH is also keen for Miss [Matilda] Smith to complete the drawings of the Balsams for ICONES. Letter has additional notes attached regarding the questions of distribution JDH asks. These notes are written in the hand of Otto Stapf & John Aikman. Known recipients of the Icones illustrations are listed in the notes as Fischer v.

JHC598
From:  Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker
To:  Otto Stapf
Date:  10 February 1909
Classmark:  JDH/1/9 f.743, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Summary:  

JDH returns the New York Herbarium bundle of Impatiens to Otto Stapf. He says that there are 6 species, 1 of which is totally different from the ones in Elmer Merrill's collection. He has completed the diagnoses of the Phillipines species, 20 in total. It was a hard job & only 2 were previously known. The numbering has confused JDH as it is under different headings. There is a table to illustrate this. JDH still has to describe them in detail and then intercalate them with the other Malay examples. He says that all have pedicellate inflorescence & uniform stamens, apart from one. JDH says that Stapf and the Director should take some of the remaining copies of his paper from the ARCHIVES and the ICONES, should they wish. He says a lot of periodicals go with the New York Balsams. He is now to start work on the Indo-Chinese specimens and thanks Stapf for sending part of FLORA GENERALE DE INDO CHINE, and asks if he may keep it until he understands the plants a little more. He says that he will be able to manage with it written in French.

JDH informs Otto Stapf that he is sending a parcel to the Director by rail which contains four items: periodicals; FLORA OF INDO CHINA; SPECIES OF HYDROCERA and ICONES material for Miss [Matilda] Smith. Stapf has annotated the note after JDH's signature, noting that Miss Smith is still ill and that the ICONES material should go to her. He writes 'No more Hydrocera'.

JHC558
From:  Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker
To:  Sir William Turner Thiselton-Dyer
Date:  17 March 1909
Classmark:  JDH/2/16 f.199, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
Summary:  

JDH is sending to Thiselton-Dyer [WTTD] the introductory essay and proof sheet to the Chinese Impatiens of the Paris Herbarium. Says he always regretted the verbose descriptions of the Cape and Tropical African floras. JDH believes that it is more desirable for the descriptions to be similar to those of the British India flora. He says he had forgotten about his description of the Burdwan coal flora from his Himalayan Journals. JDH is amused at WTTD's idea that he is the father of Godwan land [Gondwanaland; an ancient supercontinent that according to study of plate tectonics incorporated present-day South America, Africa, Arabia, Madagascar, India, Australia, and Antarctica. WTTD may have credited JDH with the title due to his early study of plant distribution, from which he inferred that land masses change over time]. JDH can only remember discussing Indian and Mediterranean genera in Africa in his Marocco[sic] [Morroco] book [JOURNAL OF A TOUR IN MAROCCO AND THE GREAT ATLAS]. Has observed bees as main pollinating agents of Himalayan and American Balsams in his garden. [Issac Henry] Burkill has been observing the pollinating actions of insects in India but not relating to Balsams.
