SUBJECT:—

 

My dear Baron,

I should like to have your opinion about the enclosed specimens of Banksia marginata which I took from Kangaroo Island.1 The leaves are as you may observe very linear and extremely narrow. Is it B. marginata or another species?

An answer at your convenience will surely oblige.

Yours truly

J. E. Brown
