Extract from Thomas Jefferson to William Hamilton

I remember you seeing in your greenhouse a plant of a couple of feet height in a pot the fragrance of which (from it’s gummy bud if I recollect rightly) was remarkable peculiarly agreeable to me, and you were so kind as to remark that it required only a green house, and that you would furnish me one when I should be in a situation to preserve it. but it’s name has entirely escaped me.
