I am the [indecipherable] & the [indecipherable] Bulbs. The [indecipherable] in Veitchs lot are all alive. I shall be very glad of all these plants again at your leisure. Send me please the Peaches as seedlings unmarked, a whole lot of them. I daresay I shall get [indecipherable] variety among them, also a large quantity of the seedlings of the weeping Elm. I brought home a large quantity of them alive in 1869, & gave them all to the Veitches. What became of them I do not know. I have never seen the plant in Europe some in the Borghese gardens. At a sale two or three days ago at [indecipherable], a large quantity of Dend. Bigibbum was put up. The average price obtained was about 11/- so they are coming down. There was a quantity of D. Tobaense sold same time, the average of which was of course much less. Green could not learn who sent these Orchids for sale. But has a large lot coming forward.
