Mrs Bramston not only shows JA her transparencies(ehcos of MP!) at Oakley HAll but promises her some horticulural gifts:
On Thursday we walked to Deane, yesterday to Oakley Hall and Oakley, and to-day to Deane again. At Oakley Hall we did a great deal -- eat some sandwiches all over mustard, admired Mr. Bramston's porter, and Mrs. Bramston's transparencies, and gained a promise from the latter of two roots of heartsease, one all yellow and the other all purple, for you.
Nice to know that the Free-Masonry of gardeners gifts was alive and well in 18th century Hampshire!
