Has left his position at Edinburgh Botanic Garden.
I write a single note to say that I have now left the Botanic Gardens of Edinburgh, and at present am residing with my friends.—
I take the liberty of acquainting you of this change in case you might have occasion to write me, previous to my having ready any matter of interest to you; and so address to the Bot. Gard. as usual.
My address now is
I sincerely trust that your health is still steadily improving; and that as spring again returns you will be sufficiently strong to resume your studies and experiments.
I remain | Sir | Very respectfully | John Scott
