Dear Petra,

Good effort! A few comments, which perhaps you could add to any future
notes---Items 1 through 6 were donated to the IAS by Lynn Hannon, Mary
Sizemore and myself from our collections made during our visit to Joep at
his place in Fr. Guyana.

Item 4, the Anthurium moonenii, is the same species that won 'best in show'
for Denis at last years show, perhaps this titbit will help it bring in a
bigger price!

Item 5, the seedlings of Dieffenbachia humilis---we were told that this is a
very rare species, not often seen in collections or herbaria, we even made
dried specimens for Tom from this our one collection of this most attractive
species, Joep was amazed that we had found it.

Item 6 are hand-collected special cuttings, selected for shape, form and
color, of P. billietii, not generally a rare species, but these are
collections made from rare and very small special populations.
Hope most of the above may assist in obtaing the best prices for the IAS.

Sincerely,

Julius
