Today I send you the following plants No. 1 Cypripedium pubescens, No. 2 Cy[pripredium] spectabile, No. 3 Hibiscus moscheutos, No. 4 Silphium laciniatum, No. 5 Silphium perfoliatum. Castilleja is a partially parasitic plant with us and you probably would not succeed with it unless you had sown heaths on which it flourishes.
May send you one more this fall.
Very truly | W. J. Beal2 [signature]
