TitleSamuel Goodenough to James Edward Smith
DescriptionThanks Smith for his intention to send the second volume of "Florae Graecae Prodromus". Smith's "Piquote pink" carnation a curious plant, the yellow one sounds "very extraordinary" and requests a flower. In a letter to him [James] Brodie confused an enclosed specimen of 'Scirpus setaceus' for a 'Carex', reminds him of the time [William] Withering sent a drawing he was sure was a new 'Carex glareosa' and was in fact 'Eriophorum angustifolium'. The 'Sedum ochroleucum' Smith sent flourishing, asks if it will survive being kept in the open air. Everyone impatient for fourth volume of "Flora Britannica".
