My dear Baron

Ingleby2 and I tried to determine this plant yesterday by the account of the Compositae in the Flora Australiensis,3 without success. It is called Stinkweed here, and is said to be a great nuisance Will you with your usual courtesy favor us with its name.

Very truly Yours

Alex. S. Paterson4
