To J. F. Royle   [16 April – 21 May 1847]


CD understands that JFR cannot lend him the volumes [of Trans. Agric. & Hortic. Soc. India] at present. Thanks for offer to inform him of other works on the breeds of animals in India.

CD fears his belonging to the new club [Philosophical Club of the Royal Society] would be useless, since he is seldom able to dine out.

To J. F. Royle   1 September [1847]


Returns JFR’s copies of Transactions [Agric. & Hortic. Soc. India]. Has not found quite as much as he thought he might on varieties of Indian domestic animals and plants; "the attempts at introduction have been too recent for the effects, if any, of climate to have been developed". Is impressed by the work of the English in India.
