To Leonard Jenyns   7 January 1823

7 January 1823

My dear Leonard,

You must pay the postage for the information. I have brought you a very miserable specimen of Viola lutea – another of Juniperus communis and a tolerably good one of Dianthus caryophyllus and one or two others. N.B. I have added about 30 species to my own collection. By the date of this you will see that I am not so good a calculator of events as yourself.

Compliments and etc. and believe me | Yours very truly | Saturday | Jan 7th 1823 | J.S. Henslow
