TitleSamuel Goodenough, Berners Street, [London], to James Edward Smith, Norfolk, [Norwich]
DescriptionForwarded Smith's letter to Dr [John] Sims [(1749-1831), physician]. Suffering from a "smartish fit of gout". The engagement of a reader makes sitting in the chair at the Linnean Society "very pleasant". Wonders how the Society can express its dissatisfaction at [Richard] Salisbury's disrespectful treatment of [Robert] Brown [Salisbury's publication of names of 'Proteacea' first described by Brown, see RelatedMaterial]. The Parliamentary "storm" has begun. Glad Smith is so earnest about the fourth volume of "Flora Britannica". [Alexander] MacLeay [also spelt McLeay or M'Leay] "most dangerously ill with an inflammation in his bowels", concerned for his wife and twelve children.
