On Thursday I told you that Mr Mallock had corrected his paper and that it was in type, and I understood that it was, therefore, to come on next Thursday. I can stop the advertisement if you wire to-day, otherwise I shall go on with it. I have taken out Alder Wright to make way for it, as arranged. We thought that "Mr. Hulke" on the botanical board must be a mistake, but I see you have replaced him.
