[1] Oshkosh Wis. May 24- 1873Dear Sir I enclose you a few seed from the great Cypress tree growing about the Castle of Chepultepec, two miles from the City of Mexico. The largest of these is thirteen feet in diameter and its branches droop as gracefully as the elm. Chepultepec was the favorite resort of the Emperor Montezuma and he doubtless many a time reposed under these grand old trees. Seed should be planted in the mellow ground of the garden, where they will have moisture and not be exposed to the mid-day sun. Respectfully Rufus B. Kellogg 00662
