Morland is glad Sloane considers him a friend. He reminds Sloane of his interest in botany. He plans on reviewing his father’s notes with a view to publishing a botanical treatise.

Morland was the nephew of Sir Samuel Morland, diplomat and natural philosopher (Alan Marshall, Morland, Sir Samuel, first baronet (16251695), Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004; online edn, Jan 2008 [http://www.oxforddnb.com/view/article/19282, accessed 1 Sept 2011]).
