My dear Friend

I am in receipt of your last short letter and am compelled today to write but in [indecipherable] after your own measure.  I have nothing to report touching exports [indecipherable] Dr. Denny the great Pelargonium man has got your list of desiderata in that [indecipherable] & has promised to send you a supply as near as possible what you wish for.  These you must take as a present from me, a small return for the many [indecipherable] I have had from you.  The last envoi by the way came in capital order.  I shall have one alive of every thing, for the most 

The Honble
Sir Wm. Macarthur, M.L.C.

[In left margin]
is going next week to Bromley Common where [indecipherable] all the good dear friends are quite well.  Last week I was for a few days with the [indecipherable] all well.  The Therxes [?] are staying there at present.

With fondest love to you all,
From yr. affy

Geo. Macleay
