Nov. 19th 1853
I have received another parcel of seeds from Mr Plant of Natal & 2 Varieties of Bulbs which he thinks a great deal of & considers very beautiful, of the Amaryllis there are 5 bulbs & the Hemerocallis 23 bulbs, these as well as the Seeds are in beautiful order, enclosed is a list of them, which I am desirous of disposing of entire – £10 is the price fixed – you might perhaps find a friend who would like to join with you in their purchase – the Nurserymen if they purchase, would not like to have them separated.
Yr early reply will oblige
Of the Seeds Mr Plant calls particular attention to the Lobelias (red)
