3814. HUMBOLDT (Baron von), Esteemed.—

The receipt of your Distributio Geographica Plantarum, with the duty of thanking
you for a work which sheds so much new
and valuable light on botanical science, excites
the desire, also, of presenting myself to your
recollection, and of expressing to you those
sentiments of high admiration and esteem,
which, although long silent, have never slept.—
To F. H. Alexander von Humboldt. Washington ed. vii, 74. Ford ed., x, 88.
(M. 1817)
