Madison, Aug 14, 1867My dear Mr Muir, I came home from Chicago last week sick, and am only just ready to return to my usual ways. The ferns I wrote of I want for a friend in Troy - Aspedi[illegible] fragrans and A t[illegible] if I can get them Mr Laph[illegible] tells me they are abundant at Kilborn and about the Delles. I care les for any thing else. The Calopogon you can pack in a little wet moss - but do not take any trouble about them. [I have I am now?], and we will confer about moss when you come. If we were nearer to Port Hope. I would ask you to bring me a couple of roots of your favorite Osm[illegible] - but I fear we shall not be here


Madison, [Wisc]
