Write to Messrs Lee of Hammersmith, and they may be able to send you a few berries of the Grape. We have it, but not yet ripe. We thought it a nice-looking good-flavoured Grape when we tasted it at Leicester. We have found no difficulty in setting Mrs Pince's Muscat. The bunches are large, and we think they will colour well. We saw a very fine bunch of it, along with other very fine Grapes, a short time ago at Tynningham. Next month we shall be able to let you know more about its flavour than we could now.
