428. ARBORICULTURE, Cork Oak.—[further continued].

I have been long endeavoring
to procure the cork tree from Europe,
but without success. A plant which I brought
with me from Paris died after languishing some
time, and of several parcels of acorns received
from a correspondent at Marseilles, not one
has ever vegetated. I shall continue my endeavors,
although disheartened by the nonchalance
of our southern fellow citizens, with
whom alone they can thrive.—
To James Ronaldson. Washington ed. vi, 92. Ford ed., ix, 370.
(M. Jan. 1813)
