Old Orchard,



Dec[embe]r. 26th 1911

Arthur W. Hill Esq[uire].

Dear Sir

I enclose seeds of all the plants my wife received from Uganda last June; of the four not yet sown, the local names (English) only are given, and they may be common or even garden plants, but I send them in case any one of them [[2]] should prove to be of interest.

I will send a specimen of the grass when the flowers seem to be fully expanded.

Yours faithfully | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
