Comments: The illustration on the opposite page is a life drawing entitled 'A stalk or branch of Cacao wt. ye. fruit vid. descript.' in Sloane's hand. Kickius's 'E.K. fecit' is encircled and may only refer to the piece of fruit wall and single seed which form a part of the specimen. Three flowers were also drawn from the four on the specimen. Alongside the stalk of the specimen is written an undecipherable 'Hs is Jnc'. (C. D. Adams)
