Letter from Albert Ruth to Mary Daggett Lake: May 16, 1932


Pages That Need Transcription




Polytechnic Sta Fort North, Texas May 16/1932

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
