Dear Dr. Small.-
Have "been watching the Stenoohlaena
palustris. and can find no difference between the
development of the fronds, except the juvenile leaves
have a softer texture, the pinna of some, broader,
with a pinkish tinge to the color* One
root sent up two very small loaves, the pinna taking
a somewhat oblique position on the midrib, while
unrolling. Have not found any spores so far. The
fern seems to grow from the underground rootlets,
which are from 3 to six feet long. If they can get
under the roots of a tree or anything they can "hide”
under, they seem to like it and its very hard to dis-
locate them. Will send you a picture the first time
I can get out.

My dear Dr.Small.-
At last I have found the spores we have
been looking for on the Stenoohlaena palustris. I had
a small root of it growing in the garden, and this mor-
ning I noticed a different leaf, and found the spores.
I am sending the leaf, It is not a perfect one but
it gives you the information we were looking for.
Best wishes.
Sincerely yours.
