March 2d 1815

My dear Henry,

Thank you for your present it did me more good than all the cordials I could have taken (for I am not well) I wish I had any return to make. I should not have written but I [illegible deletion] thought you might think me indifferent. We went to several Nursery Gardens yesterday (not to Lee & [Keneddys?] in Fraser’s Garden I saw two Ferns in Pots one a Polypodium & the other an Aspidium – I cannot describe the Music it was to my ears when the Man told me what they were – He said they came from America, but to the best of my knowledge the one was P. vulgare & the other A. lobatum like this something the lobe bigger than I have drawn you know what I mean neither in Genetification – When you come I hope to find something – There is a gutter in Hyde Park which has Moss in it which (excepting I. muralis & Bryum argenteum) the only one I have seen –

yours most affy
(hoping you will excuse stupidity)
