From Joseph Hooker   1 May 1882

May 1 /82.

Dear Baron

At your suggestion1 I wrote to Profr. Pfeffer for Gartners Forstera alias Athecia, it is Royena glabra with the fruit turned upside down. Curiously enough Forsters original ticket with Royena? glabra is with the specimen. This was stuck inside the lid of the little box & unobserved till after we named the plant[.]2 I have returned it to Mr Pfeffer.

Ever yr

Jos D Hooker
