Bournemonth, 12 December, 1892. Two page letter to fellow author, Edmund J. Baillie ("John Ruskin: Aspects of His Thought and Teaching, 1882) thanking him for sending his paper on the character of conifers and discussing the colors of trees. "I am much struck by your remarks on the fine tints and colours of this tribe, which I have often noticed myself with admiration. I think that on the alps where the ferns affect one most, the cloud and mist, intervening between, give a new cadence to their natural colour.." etc. A very nice letter by the renowned poet and botanist, de Tabley. With the cover of the letter affixed to an unmarked page.
