Many thanks for the Calochortus1 bulbs you sent me which I planted yesterday, we having had nearly 2 weeks continous fog, almost all over England. Also for the 10 packets of Colorado seeds which I shall sow in the Spring. I see you have still a fine mountain country near you which you will be able to explore in the summer especially if you can get (or hire) a small "motor".
Having passed the shortest day we begin to look forward to the Spring! Wh[ich]. may be here some [2 words illeg.] escape a frost.
Do not trouble to send me any of your technical papers as I am overwhelmed with things which I have no time to read. Any thing about the flora however interests me.
Yours very truly | Alfred R. Wallace [signature]
