My dear Henry
I enclose you a little morsel of Hypnum Proliferum in seed –
as I think you [did not fin?] as I think you said you had not got it – Jane <1> says it is rarely found in fructification – I am going to send her a whole heap to name & when I have her answer I will let you know what they are, in case you shd wish for any – I have her sighing for you every day, as it is dismal to ponder over Mosses by myself.
