what the object was, but it has now gone from me. The sum named may not be correct, but it is a happy sum for the Garden to have and use. Carl Chiristensen, the fern man, was also at the dinner. He is a stocky Scandanavian with a pleasant countenance and a geniune agreeable manner.

Since Cotton is keeper of the Herbarium, all this has a somewhat strange undertone in it.
