Printed letter to A. Bennett Esq., A.L.S., from an unknown sender at Birmingham(?) thanking him for the reprints on 'Potamogeton' and 'Orobanche'. Tells Bennett that "our Herbarium here is in such a state that it is impossible to do anything in the nature of systematic research" due to the material that they already have, which means that the sender and their one assistant are busy. They mention that one of the collections they have is Rev. Augustin Ley's, which requires properly poisoning and mounting. Their foreign herbarium is in an even worse state than the British. There is no signature after 'Yours sincerely'.
