My Dear Sir

I have received the notice of your papers <1> for the meeting of the Royal Society <2> on the 20th. I have much pleasure in inserting them in the Billet. <3>

I am glad that you were pleased with the plants in the Botanic gardens & I hope you will be able to report favourably to the Earl of Ilchester <4>

I shall be glad if I can aid him in his Horticultural work by giving him a small Palm or two If you let me know what the Earl wants <5> I shall try to do something for him

This is a remarkable season We are nearly a month in advance. I trust that there will be no check to the onward progress of vegetation.

I am yours sincerely
J. H. Balfour
