To J. D. Hooker 1 December 1843

Hitcham Hadleigh Suffolk

1 Dec 1843

My dear Sir,

Before I left Cambridge yesterday, I directed a large packet of Darwin's plants to be forwarded to you. I think I have selected all from the Herbarium - but it is possible there may be a few from a packet which I received from my late Brother, which had been intermixed - but if so you will find them dated 1827 & no number & without Darwin's name. I must bring the Catalogue which corresponds to the numbers when I come to town on Monday week, & will leave it at 13 Clements Inn. I have Directed the packet to be left there with my Brother S. W. Henslow - till you call or send for it. I will look out the Galapagos plants (which are here) & bring them also.

Very truly Yrs

J. S. Henslow
