member me with an order for a copy .While my collection of exsiccatae is on a purely scientific plan, I could easily select a pretty set of, say , one to three hundred of the neatest and showiest of plants, and if you have any use for them , plea -se , believe that you do a double service : you gain for yourself achoice lot of sweet specimens, and at same time give employment to a man sorely in need of such . I charge $7.00 per century of properly gotten out specimens, labeled , numbered , and beyond reproach in preparation.Respectfully yours
