I have now looked again at your Euphrasia and think that it may be the Jaubertiana. I hope that you have succeeded in finding more of it, as a single specimen, and such a small one, is not quite enough to determine the plant, and far from []2 enough to authorise its record ever as a naturalized plant.
I shall be glad to hear if you have again found it and am truly yours | Charles C. Babington [signature]
I am no longer at St Johns Coll[ege] so please to omit that and say Cambridge.
