Camden Park – Menangle –

My dear Sir William

I did not reply to your interesting letter of 12 Feby,
until I was in a position to send you some of your
desiderata. This I am now able to do; and accordingly
despatch with this – first – a crate containing 8 pairs of
very large specimens of Platycerium grande – These are becoming
scarce as the scrubs disappear, and can only be procured some
miles away – It is however quite unnecessary to avail of your offer
to pay for them, as I am exceedly [exceedingly] happy to place them at your disposal –
Secondly a Wardian case with the following contents, vz:–
Goodyera sps (Fiji); Pot of Vanda Roxburghii; Pot of Aerides
Lindleyana; Pot ofg Aerides sps Labuan – probably A. odorata; Pot
of Dendrobium from Thursday Island – either bigibbum or D. superbium;
Pot of Renanthera coccinea – as we believe the orchid to be; Dendrobium
striolatum ; Pholidota imbricata ; Bulbophyllum lichenastium,
rare & interesting ; Bulbophyllum Baileyi; 2 distinct sps orchids from
E.
