Letter re buying and planting of trees on Pembroke Leys, 1804-09-21
Scope and Contents
Possibly to Frere. There is no addressee but it is also possible it was written to William Porden who drew a plan for landscaping the College site (although his extant plan is not dated until 1805). Annesley writes: in the very uncertain state which the affairs of the College are now in I shall be very sorry to involve the Society in any extraordinary expense.. I think you have been in a great hurry to engage for trees which everything was uncertain beyond your affidavit.. I can not but admire the design you have sent me.. I do not understand your estimate which I think you bring to £300 for planting the outside boundary.
