My dear Henry

I am sorry you did not save more seed of your Silene but I am sure I shall have enough for all if it flourishes!

I send you some seed of a neat little Silene which Ld Nicholl brought home two years ago, it seems to flourish here. he is the Gardener of the family & would prize any of your varieties I am sure having got a Stove in which he is vy fond of trying experiments & nursing up treasures I wish you knew him.

You never answered my questions about your plants & in the box is there any earth at all for their roots?

I saw the Desfontainia Spinosa at Lacock but it was not in flower. My pretty little heath leaved listus never recovered journey (I think your Gardener had just potted it when I had it) so I had not the pleasure of seeing its flower.

Mr Traherne is just now in London he went up with Jane last Wedy for a short time

Charlotte is pretty well we send our love to You all.

I shall remain here a few days longer & then go to Margam

Henry Fox Talbot Esqre
Lacock Abbey
