To John O'Shanassy   29 June 1858

Melbourne bot. Garden,

29. June 1858.

Sir

I have the honor to solicit, that the following sums may be placed at my disposal for the probable expenditures during the next quarter in this establishment, vize:

Wages, according to a rate not exceeding that in former quarters

£700

Purchase of plants

125

Incidental expenses

25

Travelling expenses out of the vote for tools, apparatus &c as prayed for in my letter of the 20. inst1

1202

The latter item to last throughout the year, and to include also Mr Dallachis travelling expenses incurred in a journey to the Grampians, which cannot well be met by the vote for incidental expenses.

I have the honor to be,

Sir

your most obedient & humble servant

Ferd. Mueller

 

The Honorable the Chief Secretary &c &c &c

See M to J. O'Shanassy, 22 June 1858.
