My dear Baron,

Will you kindly advise me with reference to the names of the enclosed specimens of Eucalypts. I found the trees growing upon salty ground within a few miles of Port Gawler.2 Both attain a size of about 25 ft; bark somewhat rugged and persistent. Please refer to each by the number upon envelope.

Many thanks for your last.3

Yours very truly

J. E. Brown.
