To J. D. Hooker   28 April 1844

Hitcham | H. S.

28 April 1844

My dear Sir,

On my return here I find your letter – You will have had mine & know how to act – I entered a recommendation in the Books of the Public Library to take in a coloured Copy of your Flora – It must rest with the next meeting of the Library Syndicate to determine whether they will choose to do so – If it makes no difference to your Bookseller whether my N os are left in London or forwarded under cover thro' my own Bookseller’s parcel at Hadleigh, I s d certainly prefer the latter plan, as I s d get the N os more regularly – His name is Mr Hardacre of Hadleigh, & his London Correspondent is Groombridge.

Ever y rs | J S Henslow
