We have not to my knowledge Sloanes herbarium here. Nymphaeas we do not keep at all - having no accommodation for them; in fact for the present we prefer to do little more than keep the hardy plants alive. You have probably seen the figures in Van Houtte's Flore Des Serres which contains several, with text by Dr. Planchon [French botanist, Jules Emile Planchon (1823-88)]. The letter is in fine condition, with minor age toning.
