Phytologist, n.s. VI (Oct. 1862), 314. Appeared in the section entitled “Botanical Notes, Notices, and Queries.” In the “Communications Received” section a letter from Mill is mentioned (ibid., p. 320); the quoted words are presumably from that (non-extant) letter. Not republished. Not listed in Mill’s bibliography.
our esteemed correspondent “J.S.M.” in his homeward journey saw much of Verbascum thapsiforme between Vienna and Switzerland, in “the Austrian Highlands, where, like many other plants, it grows much more luxuriantly than in the North.” Some good examples of this species have been seen in the Chelsea Botanic Garden.
