March 10th. 1864

Sir.

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.—1

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

Denholm2

Hawick.

Roxburghshire.

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
