Handwritten etter from Latham to Wilkinson W H explaining the flower that Wilkinson had sent him, providing the scientific name, 'Cineraria cruenta' and to plant it now so that it flowers next year. 'Botanical Gardens, Edgbaston, Birmingham' printed at the top of the letter and 'W. B. Latham, Curator' beside it. Date undeerneath says '12. 5. 97' but the '5' is smudged like it has tried to be rubbed out. The accompanying note clearly says 'April 12/97'. The letter reads that if Wilkinson has a little seed to share they would be glad to have it as they have grown it at the Botanical Gardens from seeds before on many occasion. It is a variable plant and from seeds you get may shades of colors.
