Down | Beckenham, Kent. | Railway Station | Orpington. S.E.R.

July 25th 75

My dear Hooker

Frank wants to join the Linn Soc: & will you be so kind as to sign the enclosed?1 If Dyer has not left will you ask him or Oliver, or perhaps Mr Bentham2 will do him the honour of signing? If you think it advisable to have a Zoologist will you forward the paper & this note to Huxley,3 as I am sure he will sign; & he can then send it direct to the Linnean Soc.

Remember that I consider that you are pledged to come down here on the first Sunday you are free

Yrs affectionately | Ch. Darwin
