Autograph Letter Signed to  Robert Morton MIDDLETON , jr., F.L.S., F.Z.S., (1846-1909, English shipbroker and botanist), saying he is "very glad to find that any of my autographs are of value ... to your collection ... Of the portraits I am afraid you will be disappointed to find ... that some of them are faded. The one of Admiral Fitzroy looks very spotty, but a little paint would set that all right, a process which all photographs go through before they are sent out. I did not see either of the plants that you name at Rievaulx. The flowering plants that interested me most ... were Primula farinosa & Epipactes palustris at Rievaulx ... But I was working more at Freshwater Algae" and pressing his correspondent to visit him, 3 sides 8vo., 6 Park Village East, Regent's Park, N.W., 18th September
