Kew Herbarium it. Its beyond me."  I went on to say that my work was only part of the general field of science and the purpose etc of scientific workers.  Well, he said, I meet all sort of men, I've traveled. I've seen all kinds.  But you're a curiosity.  So you do it for the love of it.  You'd rather do that than anything else in the world!"  Then I tried to show that the progress of the world depended upon the pioneers of science etc.  "Well, you are refreshing.  I'm glad I met you.  You are refreshing.  I wish I was you!" I tell you said he, you are a very different from us and from any American I've seen!  You are refreshing, old chap.  I'm glad I met you I say!" :::::::::  June 1, 1906.  = Royal Horticultural Society Show Temple, Victoria Embankment. Very fine display of orchids. The Rhododendrons were splendid - some were as delicate and tender and snowy as if they would melt!  The colors of the Azaleas were also exquisite!  A full lot of Calceolarias of huge size.  The foliage plants (Caladiums) made a fine show - I saw huge leaves that were rich and delicate enough for a summer girl's dress.  There was little fruit -but a fine display of strawberries - some of them larger than tea-cups.  The carnations were huge, the roses not especially noteworthy.  Japanese dwarf trees.  Collection of shrubs.
