Dear Dr Mueller

The True Briton has arrived all safe & we expect your boxes daily.

A beautiful blue Ipomoea of yours is now being figured for Magazine, possibly a var of Pharbitis Nil but a beautiful thing.2

Can you send us a box Blandfordias & other bulbs?

In great haste

Ever sincerely Yrs

Jos D Hooker
