Transcription

March 22. Working on plants hoping to get them dry before starting home. March 23. Working on plants and walking in the Botanical Gardens, always something new for me there. The most interesting garden I have yet seen. Besides a good representative collection of native trees and shrubs there are large groups of most interesting trees, etc., of the islands of the Pacific, South America, Africa, India and the hot and temperate regions of the world in general. The topographical features of the garden and adjacent domain bordering the harbor are admirable adapted to the uses of a great city’s pleasure ground. The favorite place for quiet strolls and picnics; the Domain for all sorts of out of doors speaking, etc.
