From Joseph Hooker1    March 1878


[…]2 either the Society or the Garden just now.

I have written for Tussock Grass seed if it is to be had from the Hebrides (not Shetlands) The last accounts I had from there were very bad; the larva of a large Moth was devastating the Tussocks, & rot followed their borings. I do not in the least believe that you can grow it in Victoria, except perhaps high at the Alps but you shall have seed if I can get it.

A thousand thanks for the West Australian seeds, which are most acceptable. They arrived last night.

Ever my dear Mueller

Very sincerely yr

Jos D Hooker
