The package of plants kindly sent by yourself arrived safely this morning via New York. Why it went way around that way is a mystery to me. We all thank you for the attention, and shall value the specimens as from a friend. As individuals we are striving to complete our collections of ferns, of which only the rare species are now in demand. B. [boreale?], N. [tenera?], C. [viscida?] A[illegible]
