29th August 1911.
Dear Dr. Wallace,
Primula saxatilis is a hardy form, growing all over Northern Asia. It is a plant that is frequently found in cultivation under the name of P. cortusoides, and also recently it has come into the market as P. oreodoxa. It is easily recognised by the very long pedicels of the flowers far overtopping the bracts. The true P. cortusoides has a dense umbel with very short pedicels to the flowers. P. oreodoxa is not in cultivation.
Believe me to be, | Yours very truly, | Isaac Bayley Balfour [signature]
