No 59 [illegible] at Indp'l's May 15 '67 Mrs A. A Hanner I am glad you seek my acquaintance, as I have long since desired yours. I would glady be acquainted with all botanists and with all that botanists love; I must tell you how- ever, that although a fervent lover of botany, I know very little about it - Gods precious plants are dear indeed to me, but when I walk among them I feel that I am with strangers I am not intimately ac- quainted with a single flower
