Trans. page 214, vol. 3.) from Aylmer Bourke Lambert, Esq. fellow of the Royal and Linnaean Societies; a gentleman whose zeal for the advancement of the science is unbounded, and whose labours to that end, as well as his endeavours to render botany of universal benefit, by combining the useful with the pleasing; (witness his work on the Cinchonas, or Jesuits Barks) do him the greatest credit.
