Botanical Notes

Author Unknown: 1920s


English hand-written. No author listed.

A black, loose-leaf binder full of soiled and faded notes on botany. They deal with experiments with some kind of mind-altering substance (Soma) that is created with fly agaric along with extracts of several other plants to produce what the writer called “Soma, a necessary ingredient in the calling of Ramasekva.” They refer to a plant with large orange and blue waxy leaves and another that had spiky blue-green leaves and a large, fleshy, white and purple flower. The notes claim that the seeds for the two impossible plants were seeds given to the writer as gifts from Ramasekva.


Taken from the house of Benjamin Willows’ neighbor, Bernard Corbitt, on June 1, 1925.
