My dear Whewell,

Many thanks for sending me the interesting paper – & the good news of Horts election to a fellowship– I will take your advice & read again what you have said of the History of Botany– It is so long since I read it that I have only a very general impression of what you state– I am coming to Cambridge on Nov 2. for 2 nights, to examine, & may then perhaps inform you on Ipswich matters which for a time were a source of great annoyance & disquietude to me – indeed, I cannot say this has yet entirely ceased– Mrs H. is quite well– Mrs Hooker leaves us today for Kew – but we expect her back in Jan y. the grandmamma expectant wishing her to be here during her troubles– Louisa has not yet quite got rid of her heel-adventure last Feb y– She is staying at Shelford– The other 3 are at home & all well–

Our kind regards to M rs W. | & Believe me | Ever truly y rs J S Henslow
