You Mean Someone Will Buy This?

Following his investigation, JHH Boyd attracts the interest of several naturalist-writers/horticulturalists, including Mr. Emerson E. Sterns and Dr. Robert G. Eccles. JHH Boyd makes his first sale of Bubby seed pods for $5.00 (roughly $135 today) to Mr. Sterns, and in turn, Mr. Sterns agrees to show JHH Boyd the other native species of value in the area and their respective uses. The order encourages JHH Boyd to gather and grow additional plants for sell.
