If I am not taking too great a liberty might I beg for another specimen of your yellow pink in order to get a drawing made of it for a new periodical which is to appear next month & to wch I have promised to be an occasional Contributor I have shewn the other specimens to several Botanists who are all unacquainted with it A few root leaves on a stalk wd be acceptable with the specimen I can call for it at any place where you may be able to leave it most conveniently

Yrs very faithfully
J. S. Henslow
