Mueller), I bestow a beautiful and singular plant to the most distinguished Redm. Barry, judge of our colony, chancellor of the University of Melbourne [Sir Redmond Barry, first Chancellor of the University of Melbourne].

- [Goodenia Nicholsonii.] stirpem decoram illustri Carolo Nicholson, Equiti, M.D., LL.D., D.C.L., Universitatis Sydneyensis Cancellario offero (F. Mueller), I present a beautiful plant to the honorable Carl Micholoson, Knight, M.D., LL.D., D.C.L., Chancellor of the University of Sydney.
