Dear Muir

Yours of 31 Oct is just in. We arrived [NW, S.?] – are still unsettled: so I can only now say, Send [us?] your Arctic plants – [or?] a set of them, and I will do all that one can with them: no doubt I can name them promptly. We had a good voyage home & a fine time abroad: Shall be glad to hear or read the interesting things you will have to tell about. Ever yours truly

[Ava?] Gray
