From Lucy Caroline Wedgwood [6 June 1864]1
My dear Uncle Charles
I cannot give a very satisfactory answer, as many of the flowers have shed their seeds, but it is really quite easy to tell by the husk if there have been any:2 1st. They are seeding pretty freely, sometimes 6 or 7 fl. with seed to a head, I should think about half the flowers produce seeds. 2ndly. Far the greatest number have only one seed, but several have two and one I saw wh had had 33
How curious it looks seeing the teeth of this calyx carefully holding the seed in I wonder why it does it—
Mamma4 is coming home today, she has been very unwell but I hope is better now—
