To J. D. Hooker   29 [March 1867]

Down

Friday 29th

My dear Hooker.

Do let us have a line in a few days to tell us how the Baby is, for we are anxious to hear.1 It is wonderful what convulsions infants will endure without any harm to their constitutions.

I will remember to save all plants for you from foreign plants, when I have done experimenting with them.2

Yours affect. | C. Darwin
