Aistershaim, Upper Austria,
Dec. 15, 1875.
It is Mr. Sereno Watson, Cambridge, (Mass.) to whom I am owing the notice you might perhaps be willing to exchange botanical specimens with me. Allow me then to introduce myself to you as a zealous colleague in the "scientia amabili" to whom it would afford the highest satisfaction to enter in direct relations with you. I may state that I am in correspondence with many of our leading botanists, besides possessing a very rich herbarium and collecting myself a great number of plants. At all events, you may rely upon obtaining a full return. The transmission of our packages to the care of the Smithsonian. I shall be happy to have to this a reply in the affirmative.
I am, with the highest consideration,
Very truly yours,
Dr. K. Keck.
