From J. D. Hooker   29 December 1874



Explains that his letter had to do with how he should act publicly to Mivart if he retracted. He would not forgive him. If he does not retract, it would no longer be possible to keep him Secretary of the Linnean Society.

Drosophyllum will be sent when weather permits.

CD thought he had already reported to DN on Utricularia. The large swellings in roots store water. The minute bladders are adapted to catch live animals and feed on decayed remains.

Will visit DN when in London this winter.
