[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—Three years ago this settlement was one of those to benefit by the gift of spare plants from some of your readers. We should be most grateful if you could appeal once more to garden lovers to help in this way. Our own settlement garden and the patches cultivated by some of our neighbours make great claims on our small resources—for, in this neighbour- hood, even the hardiest annuals give up struggling in the third year against the difficulties of poor soil, bad air, soot, cats, &c: I can promise that everything sent will be most carefully tended, every flower cherished and watched.—I am, Sir, &C., ELEANOR T. KELLY. - St. Margaret's House, Bethnal Green, London, E. 2.

[We earnestly support this appeal.—En. Spectator.]
