Can you send me some seed of them? They were growing wild. In San Francisco I got a variety of your wildflower seed but could not get this lupin. While I ask you to procure me this I must offer to send you what seed you would like to have from England. I am sending now to Providence R.I. to a lady friend of mine some seed of my Delphiniums. I think I have never seen such beauties! Some have grown up to eight feet. My brother sent me a collection of these plants, being (my brother) very fond of blue and they are lovely. I am sorry to say that I have not received yet from Japan any of the numerous plants I bought there.Please present my regards to Mrs. Muir, who, although I have not had the pleasure of meeting, seems I must know through knowing you. Remember me also to the young ladies. With friendly greetingsAlways Sincerely YoursE. Furse[letterhead]Jan. 16. 1905Dear Prof. MuirMany thanks for your kind letter and good wishes. I received your book. Did you not get my letter of thanks? You should have had it long before this. I enjoyed reading it, but I wish I had read it before I met you to enjoy all the fun our friends made on the good natured Professor at the end of the table. Mr. McLennon has sent me such a beautiful card at Christmas and wrote such pretty sentiments! I hope, as I do in your case, to meet my friends some time here. I think you have had the invitation03510
