Jones has shipped a ‘Tarantana’ tree to London, which cost him ’50 Dollars’. He is forced to ask Sloane for money or he ‘shall starve’ as a result of the expense. Jones has instructed his cousin, Mrs Abbott, to stop by Sloane’s to collect any letters or money that he can offer. He has some bulbs to send to Sherard. Jezreel Jones was a traveler and diplomat known for his Arabic skills. He was elected clerk to the Royal Society in 1698 and chosen as British envoy to Morocco in 1704 (Elizabeth Baigent, Jones, Jezreel (d. 1731), Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, Jan 2008 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/15022, accessed 3 July 2013]).
