To William Swainson

Lin. Soc.


My dear Swainson

Don tells me that no one knows how Cunningham situation was ever called that of a Botanist - it being only adapted to growing cabbages for the convicts. He knows however that it had been filled up by a Mr Anderson who has been out there some time, & was recommended by the Colonial government.

Rice knew nothing about it.

Yrs ever truly
