To Charles Tyers   5 September 1859

Melbourne bot. & zool. Garden

5 Sept. 59


I have the honor to inform you, that some people of seemingly suspicious character are camped since some time in the quarry back of the ferry next to the botanic Garden in the Gov. Reserve, a circumstance which as an officer of the Government I thought it my duty to bring under your notice.

I have the honor to be,


your most obedient servant

Ferd. Mueller.


Mr Commissioner Tyers.1

On 5 September Tyers minuted 'Mr Bickford to take immediate steps to remove these people'. N. Bickford, Head Crown Ranger, replied on 6 September: 'The Parties complained of removed according to order'.
