Cowes
6th September 1832

Dear Sir

I agree with you <1> that the plants of Texas ought to be estimated at 2.10 instead of 2 I shall be glad to have a set of the Missouri and Louisiana plants, & request they may be sent to my house in London. I have lately discovered in a forest in this island <2> the Cnicus tuberosus, which I believe is almost extinct in its only other habitat in Boyton downs <3> in Wiltshire.

Believe me to remain Dear Sir Yours most truly


Notes:

1. See Doc. No: 02404, to which this is the reply.

2. The Isle of Wight.

3. Near the home of Aylmer Bourke Lambert (17611842), botanist.
