Darwin Correspondence Project

To J. D. Hooker   [15 February 1846]1

My dear H.

I have been obliged to make the order payable to Dr Joseph D Hooker at X cross,2 as they told me there is no order office at Kew—

I am sorry thus to trouble you.— | C. D.— Sunday Does Sir William know the Dean of Manchester’s address in London.?—


Dated from the relationship to the letter to J. D. Hooker, [10 February 1846].
Presumably CD meant Charing Cross post office. A money order made possible the safe transmission of small sums through the post by specifying the name of the recipient and the office at which payment was to be made.


Has had to make a Post Office order to JDH payable at Charing Cross instead of Kew.

Does Sir William [Hooker] know the Dean of Manchester’s London address?
