Dear All:

So pleased to hear that Lilium mackliniae is giving pleasure to many. It
recalls to mind the time I met Kingdon Ward, I think it was in 1955 and
he told me about discovering it, a great man, ramrod straight, gray hair
and he was so gracious in taking time to talk to me. he came up to me,
thrust out his hand and said " I am Kingdon Ward", how does one reply to
such a man? I simply said I am John Bryan and we chatted for quite a
while. Cheers, John E. Bryan wrote:
