Letter from J.D. Hooker [Joseph Dalton Hooker] to George Maw

Scope and Content

Written from Royal Gardens, Kew. Manuscript

He thanks Maw for his note and the Saxifraga and sedums; they are getting on nicely with Mr Lynch [Richard Irwin Lynch] but he still has half the ground to rearrange thanks to Duncan's [unidentified] 'messing'; he mentioned Morocco as he had thought of going himself next spring; he cannot go in 1872 as he has promised to go to North America; he would like to go with company, as two people can do more together, and he and Maw would work together well; he encloses letters from Mr Carstensen [Frederick Carstensen], the consul at Mogador [Essaouira, Morocco] on the subject and asks Maw to return them, and to keep the matter private [enclosures not present]; he sends a list for enamelled pale green labels and asks Maw to attend to full stops and commas; their size should be the same as the labels for the economic plants
