Excerpt from Phytologia, Vol. 58: An International Journal to Expedite Botanical and Phytoecological Publication; August, 1985
How is it, my dear Sir, that you have not yet procured my admission into the Royal Society? Pray oblige me by signing the certificate and presenting it I sent to Sir E. Home (19) the short paper by way of introduction.
I am far advanced with large drawings for a Pomona Occidentalis of which Prof. Hooker is to take the direction. My Fauna goes on well and the account of the volcanoes and geology of these islands. My ambition is, when I have brought them to maturity, to return to England, publish everything and present my collection to the London societies.
