Darwin Correspondence Project

From J. D. Hooker   [before 15 February 1862]1

I should think—

Mr W. C. Crocker2 Verger Chichester Cathedral

would do

I doubt if he can help you with Mormodes   What is it you want to know—

I am to see you at Lubbocks on Saturday.3


Dated by the relationship to the letter from C. W. Crocker, 17 February 1862, and by Hooker’s reference to seeing CD ‘at Lubbocks’ on the coming Saturday (see n. 3, below).
Charles William Crocker. See letter to J. D. Hooker, [before 15 February 1862] and n. 2.
The reference is to the lunch at John and Ellen Frances Lubbock’s on 15 February 1862 (see letter from John Lubbock, 13 February 1862).


Sends C. W. Crocker’s address.

Doubts CWC can help with Mormodes.

Will see CD at Lubbock’s.
