Possibly it might be interesting to some of your readers for me to remark the injuries we have sustained by the late severe weather here - in Kent. Our thermometer (Negretti's?) registered, on December 24th, 1°, and the following night 4° below zero. I believe this to be the coldest weather we have experienced since 1860. Our Aucubas, Common Laurels, and Laurustinus are, I am afraid, quite cut to the ground. On the two latter there is not a green leaf to be seen: sad will it be to see so many vacant places in our shrubberies. Our vegetable crops, such as Savoys, Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, and Lettuce, are all killed. I must give a sad account of many of our choice Conifers, such as the Golden Well-ingtonia and others of late introduction. Our Araucaria imbricata, Deodars, Norway Spruce, and a fine tree of Pinus insignis, upwards of 60 feet high, have suffered very much. Many of our choice Roses will want replacing in our flower-garden. I am afraid we shall see many things missing. It will be interesting to know how the weather has been felt in Scotland, but I am afraid it is general. - I remain, etc.
