Looking for cuttings for the New York Heritage Rose District

Hi folks,
As you may know, the New York Heritage Rose District, mostly in Harlem, of many plantings of heritage roses, with lots of volunteer work from the Heritage Rose Foundation, among other groups. We at Florida Southern College have propagated around 400 roses for the project so far, and we're about to start another large batch of cuttings. But four varieties they'd like to have in the project, that I have no source of, are:
Gallica officinalis
Kazanlik
Felicite perpute (I'm not sure if they mean Felicite Parmentier or Felicite et Perpetue, by this typo -- am looking into that)
Mme. Hardy

Wondering if any of you may be able to provide some leafy stem cuttings of any of these? You could ship to us at FSC, and we would propagate them and provide them to NYC. Please let me know if you'd like to contribute. Thanks!

Oops, that first sentence should have read "...mostly in Harlem, consists of many plantings...." I should proof-read better before submitting.

Hi Malcolm, I have Madame Hardy, Felicite et Perpetue, and Felicite Parmentier. I'd be happy to contribute.

I was going to say that I have Mme Hardy, but she beat me to it! Let me know if you need it from more than one source.

MendocinoRose -- I don't see any way here to private message or email you. But yes, thanks! It's all a volunteer effort, so I can't offer postage, etc., but if you'd like to contribute, please email me (mmanners@flsouthern.edu) and we'll make arrangements. Thanks!

Rosefolly -- I did email you.

Malcolm
