Royal Gardens Kew
My dear Sir
Next to save you throwing away valuable time, the connection with the phyllotaxy difficulty it is not worth yr. while reading Braun’s Essay (Verjüngung) excepting at p. 116.—1 the Essays referred to in note same page may throw further light,2 but I think you have enough now for Dr Falconer3
Ever Yours Sincerely | D. Oliver
DO thinks an essay [Alexander Braun’s "Rejuvenescence", Ray Society (1853)] is not worth reading with respect to some difficulty concerning phyllotaxy.
