Text from N, III, 776.

  • 5 Hyde Park Place, W.
  • Friday, Thirteenth May, 1870

I enclose a cheque, Brunt, for Seven Pounds.

I will speak to Miss Mary at dinner time to-day about the Hanging Baskets for the conservatory.

You may get some hardy Ferns from Illmans1 for the rock work. Be careful not to get more than are absolutely necessary, as the garden expenses are becoming excessively heavy.

Miss Hogarth tells me that you want 18 more Mrs. Pollock Geraniums2 and 12 Lavender Plants. You may get them from Illmans too.
