To William Thiselton-Dyer   4 August 1890



Within the last days, dear Mr Dyer, I received a large number of spare-specimens of Austr. Algs from Mr Bracebr. Wilson, which I have sorted into sets. The largest set I have this day despatched by post to Kew. As it is a valuable sending, containing many kinds, not found by Harvey, I like to have a record in my Office that this contribution has duely arrived in Kew.

Regardfully your

Ferd. von Mueller


Mr Wilson left it entirely at my option how to dispose of this valuable algologic material. I hope soon to send you several of the Decades of Salsolaceae.2
