To David Boyle   6 September 1870

Melbourne bot. Garden



Will you be so good, dear Mr Boyle, to send me one load of long tea tree, as soon as you conveniently can.

For your notes on the timber I feel much indebted; they fall pretty well in with my own views.

As regards your getting permission to remove fern trees from the black spur1 I would remark, that when you come to town it would be best for you to see the president of the Board of Lands personally, with a view of being freed of the expenditure, if that can be conceded to you

With best wishes

Ferd. von Mueller

Black Spur, near Narbethong, Vic.
