Dear Henry

I introduce to you hereby the Cavre Ricciardi a Neapolitan gentleman who is come to stay some time in London. His father Ct Camaldoli’s Villa <1> above Naples I think you must remember, & his son has also a taste for botany – If you can help him to see London, or the gardens round – I think you will find that he takes an interest in that branch of Natural Histy. His fathers collection I think I have often mentioned to you – it is much the finest at Naples – he will probably have some botanical commission for him –

Your Affte
W F S


Notes:

1. Probably Francesco Ricciardi, Count Camaldoli. [See Doc. No: 00418 and Doc. No: 02239].
