Dear Mr. Lancaster,
I am so grateful to you for sending me the two leaves and the two flowers of the plant we examined in Portland and which we decided could be nothing more than Rhododendron chlorops.
Mr. Davidian and I have this morning examined your specimen with our own specimen of chlorops and very quickly came to the conclusion that your plant can be nothing else but R. chlorops.
