From L. E. Becker 28 December 1
10 Grove st | Ardwick | Manchester
My dear Sir
Will you please to accept my hearty thanks for the paper on “Climbing Plants, which you have generously bestowed on me, and for the loan of the others which I will take great care of, and return to you before long—2 You do not name Primula farinosa in your paper3—but will not be surprised to hear that in looking over my dried specimens of this plant, nine in number—I find 5 long styled, and 4 short styled plants. I have taken the liberty of enclosing one of each in proof of my words
and remain | dear Sir | yours sincerely | Lydia E Becker
