Mr Muir

Dear Sir

Yours of Feb is at hand, and I hasten to reply lest you shall be off again. Thanks for the kind note and your offer of Alaska plants. We are working away as a club at the Orders assigned each one last spring by the President Every Saturday the ladies meet for reading of papers written on these subjects and exhibitions of specimens. The regular monthly meetings continue

and the general interest in this subject seems unabated. The classes have not been as regular as during the summer for various reasons: but they will soon go on again. I wonder if you have seen accounts of our work which have been published in the Botanical Gazette & Toney Bulletin? I hope so and now I will close hoping to hear from you soon again.

Respectfully yours

Mrs Frances J Myers

Will you try some time to tell us of your travels?
