Jepson Field Book volume 15 page 16
Kew Herbarium  Lilium Umquaense is also a charming plant well worthy of a place with L. lancifolium [?], it has a most delightful perfume and it will be perfectly hardy growing high up the slopes of the Sierra Nevada in the Pine forests. Seventy fine [five?] bulbs of this plant I lost with many others in that ill-fated steamer the Central America. This summer I hope to be able to replace them. Cupressus Lawsoniana must also have called your attention -- Whilst speaking of this fine tree allow me to ask if there is not great affinity in the cone with Sequoia sempervirens only on a minor scale -- the bark of ::::::::: Nov. 7, 1905.  Cupressus Lawsoniana differs from every other Californian cypress -- probably it may be a connecting link between Sequoia and Cupressus.  Now I am aware that you are in possession of my collections I hope you will preserve the nos. and I will shortly forward you a copy of the Catalogue which I made out when I divided the specimens. In it you will find the locality of each plant and I now regret that I did not forward it when I sent the collections. It is similar to the lists of my Chilian Herbarium. Please let me know if you intend to publish the species
