I have the honor to request you will be good enough to instruct Mr Ferguson, Inspector of State Forests, to proceed to the site of Messr Anderson Brothers, Sawmills, in the Bullarook Forest, for the purpose of affording these gentlemen advice and assistance in planting trees in the vicinity or their Mills.

The Honorable the President of the Board of Land and Works having approved of Mr Ferguson being employed on this duty and Messr Anderson paying his expenses, these gentlemen have expressed their willingness so to do.

You will also be good enough to instruct Mr Ferguson, on his return to Melbourne, to call upon me with the view of inspecting some Murray Pines.

I have the honor to be,

Sir,

Your most obedient servant
