My dear Mrs. Lake:-
I thank you ever so much for your kind words of introduction last Friday and would have thanked you last Friday, but I did not see you anywhere after the banquet.
Please allow me to make a little correction in the spelling of that Verbenaceae. I am sure I gave it to you as Phylla; it should be spelled Phyla. The white=flower type is now in flower. As I wrote to you some time ago, this plant is Verbena-like in character, but belongs according to Dr Gray, to a sub-genus Phyla, which Dr. Small makes a distinct genus. All other botanists list the plant as Lippia node flora
Dr Small is our latest & best authority.
Very sincerely yours A. Ruth
