EmuLCT FBOM ▲ Lettbb fbom De. J. Forbes Rotlb to J. C. Mbltill,
Esq., Secbetabt to the hon'ble the Court of Directors op the
East India Company, dated 318t December, 1838.

The southern provinces of India, including Bengal and the Lower provinces, with
much of the Peninsula, being of a tropical nature and climate, vrith little cold weather,
are chiefly suited for the cultivation of the plants, whether annual or perennial of
the intratropical Islands and of America and Africa. As the tropic, like the rainy
season, however, extends over all India, the peculiarities of a tropical climate, heat and
moisture, with considerable uniformity of both, prevail over a great extent of territory
fbr a few months in the year, and therefore in the most nonhera parts we have the
cultivation of rice, songhun, Indian corn and other tropical grains, m the very same
fields where, in the cold weather months, we have wheat and barley, with peas and
beans. This double climate and double culture it is necessary to notice in order

to hftTe m complete riew of the nature of the country and climate of North India.
The mean temperature of the year at Seharunpore in 30* of north latitude is about
73*, and of the months of January ft2, February 55, March 67, April, 78, May 65,
June 90, July 85, Aueuit 83, September 70, October 74, November 64, December 55.
From the middle of April the various uieful and ornamental plants of European
climates mar be successfully cultivated ; the minimum of temperature in January ia
S5* Fah. and the maximum 105^ in June.

The nursery which I established at Mussooree in the Himalayas,at 6,500 feet of eleva-
tion, though 50 miles distant, is very ronvenient for the introduction of European plants.
Mussooree has a minimum of only 25* and a maximum of 80* of Fan. shewing
that the equability is ereater than in the neighbouring plains. The mean tempera-
ture is about 57*, and of the months of January 42, February 45, March 53, April 59,
May 66, June 67, July 67, August 66, September 64, October 57, November 50, De-
cembe, 45. The season for cultivation in the Mussooree climate is from March to Oc-
tober, but between the Seharunpore garden and Mussooree nursenr a complete year of
moderate climate may be obtained for the germination of seeds of temperate climates.

At Seharunpore in November 64, December 55, January 52, February 55, and
March 57.

At Mussooree in April 59, May 66, June 67, July 67, August 66, September 64, and
October 57.

The climate having been proved favorable little diiBculty will be experienced with
the soil or with irrigation ; as far as the experiments are concerned the subsequent dis-
tribution of planu which have succeeded in the depot eardeos must of course be
determined br various circumstances, but the first should only be sent to favorable
localities, as udlure is apt to discourage further attempts. The next subject of atten-
tion and for which the preceding observations are onlv preparatory, is the kind of
plants best suited to the northern paru of India and the Himalaya Mountains. Here
we must be guided not only by the nature of the plants with respect to vicissitudes of
temperature, but also their usefulness, their annual or perennial nature, and in
noticing the climate into which we wish to introduce them, take care to conlpare it with
that &om which they are to be introduced, llie plants to be introduced may be con-
sidered with respect to their usefulness, or to their fitness for different kinds of climate.
In the former case we should arrange them under the heads of food for the inhabitants,
or fodder for their cattle — such as are likely to be useful in any of the ordinary arU of
life, or those which may afford products likely to become articles of commerce. Merely
ornamental plants should not be neglected, nor those remarkable for their odour,
as both gratify the senses and offer inducements to many to pay attention to garden-
ing, when other more useful plants are necessarily introduced and with little addition-
sd expense. Fruit trees might appear to many as not included among useful plants,
but independent of their increasing the pronortion of esculent matter in a cotmtry,
they mif ht become sources of consjderabie commerce between the plains and moun-
tains of India, as is now the case with Cashmere.

There is another class of plants to which I paid considerable attention when in In-
dia, and which, form the chief objects of ray present duties, and that is medical plants.
I was first requested to do so by the Medical board of Beojgal, and I cultivated many
articles which were pronounced, after trial in the General Hospital at Calcutta, to be
of the best quality. Dr. Falconer, the present able superinlenaent of the Saharuopore
Botanic Garaen, writes me, that extracts of Henbane, which I first cultivated and
manufactured, still continue to be supplied from the Saharunpoiip garden to the
Hospital depots. In the same situation and in the Hill Nursery, many other medicin-
al planU now sent from this country might there be successfully cultivated, and thus
be not only more cheaply produced but also prescribed in a fresher state.

Keeping these several objects in view. I have thought it preferable for practical
purposes, that is, the operations of horticulture and the selection of sites for the ex-
periments, to arrange tnose plants, I have as yet been able to think of, in separate
lists, according to the situations for which they are suited.

1. Annuals fit for cultivation in the plains of India in the cold weather and in the
iommer of the Himalayas.

2. Perennials probably suited to the plains of N. W. India.

3. Perennials suited to the Himalayas.

I hove long thought it a very interesting subject of inquiry to ascertain by experi-
ment whether the grains the people of India possess in common, with Europe, are of
the same degree of goodness and equally {froUfic. As for instance, their wheat, barley,
rice, and mustard seeds, &c.. Some of the plants which I have included in my
list are intended to be useful for their products, which may become objects of com-
merce, bat this involves another subject of enquiry, and that is whether the

quality to those cultivated in other parts of the world.

It IS probable that some of those enumerated in the lists* may'* not be suited
to the localities indicated, andastiU greater number that might be suited to them^
are, I am well aware, entirely omitted, but thia has been from want of time to give the
subject the full consideration it deserves, but as this, to be successful to any great
degree must necessarily be carried on for a few years, I shall be happy to return to
the subject if required, or point out the plants suited (or cultivation in other parts of

Though failure may attend some, I am well satisfied that success will attend the
majority of instances, and feel the utmost confidence in steting that if the subject of
the introduction of useful plants suited to the difierent parts of India be continued,
and the principles which should guide their attempts not be neglected, that very be-
neficial results will in a few years m evident to all, and that if thia be combined with
an investigatiou of, and publication to, the manufacturing world, of the very varied na-
tural procracts of India, an increase of the commerce and resources of that empire will
•Dtue, to an extent anticipated by few, but of which, after long attentioa to the subject
I feel well assured, and hope to be able to prove to the sceptical.

I have, &c.
