To Baron Fed. Von Mueller. K.C.M.G.

Subject: — Eucalypts from Port Lincoln.

 

My dear Baron.

I have just returned from a visit to the Port Lincoln district.

About 15 or 20 miles west from Pt. Lincoln, growing on a light sandy ironstone soil upon a western aspect I found Eucalypt No 1 enclosed. It attains a height of about 12 ft: is of Mallee character, smooth bark, and stiff upright habit. I found it in one place only. Please name it.

Euc. Santalifolia (No 2) I found within ½ a mile of Port Lincoln.

Euc. Corynocalyx is abundant between Port Lincoln and Marble Ranges towards Mt. Drummond.

Yours very truly

J. E. Brown.
