Inscribed in pencil by Miss Drake along top edge, 'The upper bracts slightly hairy, sweet scented', and 'Sion Gardens Aug. 31 18..'[date has been cropped]. There is a semi-circular blob of red paint or possibly sealing wax on the top edge of drawing. Also inscribed in a different hand 'Rec'd. 15.9.1925' lower right corner.
