Dear Mueller

I enclose a list of plants in Wards Case sent per Damascus.2 Please, if you can recollect to do so, inform me of the precise condition the case arrives in as to glass, packing &c. it is one of a new batch.3

Can you send us Kingia, Baxteria, Anigozanthos seeds & such like things? & above all seeds of Epacrideae of which we are quite out.

Ever sincerely Yrs

Jos D Hooker
