My dear Henry

At this charming time of year I hope you are at home if so do drop me a line I should like to take a peep at you if agreeable before I return to my nest, there it must be charming and it is only to be of use to Isabella I was induced to leave it for a time she will not want me here much longer; but I can stay on if I like. – The box of flowers we had from Abby the other day made me think of writing to you! I do not know some of the plants or rather Shrubs. nothing keeps well in the Summer I think, except pinks but I will enclose two bits in case you may be able to find them out tho’ I fear they will be something like “the dried hay” the Gardeners Chronicle complains of. –

Again this Year at Penrice I found some nice plants of the Botrychium lunaria in one place & I hope they will sow themselves & be quite plentiful soon.

I shall be very glad to hear of you & all your Party I hope they are flourishing & your Garden too –

I am your affcte
Coz Mary
