    Relates that at Mickleham, Surrey, there is an inn 'much frequented by botanists, for the beauty of the surrounding scenery, and the rare plants to be found in the neighbourhood'. One of the last acts of the dying proprietor, himself a botanist, was to send his daughter to see if a particular species was in flower. 'This is a beautiful illustration of the love of nature, and the exhaustless delight to be derived from her studies'. (308)
