From John H. Cocke

Bremo March 20th 1821

Dear Sir,

I thank you for forwarding the Seeds from Mr Rodney.—I recd them safely a few days ago. and hasten to send you herein the few Sea Kale seed I have left.—I am sorry you did not make known your wish to get this seed until I had reduced my stock so low.—

I shall make a point of attending the special meeting of the Visitors at the time proposed

Yours with high respect & Esteem

John H. Cocke
