From Eugene Fitzalan   20 April 1871

Willow Vale1

20th April 1871 —

Dear Sir

I enclose you specimens of the New Tree from Mount Dryander2 — I will send by next mail the notes you require on the woods — and some good specimens for the Museum a specimen of this tree amongst them3

yours respecfully

E Fitzalan


Another specimen, MEL 1587730, has an undated note from Fitzalan attached, which although it bears the same number may not have been collected at the same date:

Mt Dryander.

Ochrosia Kilneri F.v.M.

A large glossy leaved tree like Lactaria Calocarpa — the fruit being bright red—the tree is as large and as fine as Ficus Microphylla—no flowers at present

There is also what appears to be a field note by Fitzalan:

Leaves of tree like Lactaria—

No 2.
