My dear Professor M'Coy

Our friend Harvey solicits for subscription to his Phycologia Australica,2 and I trust you will procure this valuable publication for the University Library, particularly as a set of authentic specimens is under your care of Harveys Austral. Algae.

It will come out in 50 monthly parts, each containing 6 coloured plates with corresponding letter-press at 3/ each. Publisher Mr Lovell Reeve, 5 Henrietta Street, Covent Garden, London.

If you like I will send for your copy, to come out along with mine to be ordered by this mail.

Ferd. Mueller
