To Thomas Anderson   24 May 1867

Queensbirth day 1867.1


By this mail, dear Dr Anderson, you will receive 17 species of seeds. I have added a parcel for Mr Tyesmann,2 thinking that you can manage to send it off, for which friendly service I shall be most grateful

Have you Euryale ferox? I would like it much for my tank. We have never as yet succeeded to bring Ficus Sycamorus to Australia, which would be an excellent avenue tree.

your regardful

Ferd Mueller


What is the lowest temperature, which the different Cinchonae will endure?
