Darwin Correspondence Project

To J. D. Hooker   [25 May 1847]1



My dear Hooker

I do not know whether you are at home & have received my former note; but I write now to say I find I cannot come on Friday, but if you are at home on Thursday & are disengaged for a “jaw” (to use Falconers2 favourite graphic term) I am your man.

If at home will you send me one line (shame on me for causing you a second note) to “7 Park St Grosvenor Sqre.”

Ever yours | C. Darwin


See letter to J. D. Hooker, [22 May 1847], n. 1, for the basis of this date.
Hugh Falconer, the vertebrate palaeontologist.


Will call on JDH on Thursday, if convenient.
