Calcutta. A start was made September 21, 1835, in H. M. Ship Jupiter. A short stay was made at Madeira to enable visits to be paid to certain gardens of note there.

Calls were also made at the Cape and elsewhere, Calcutta being reached in March, 1836. Here Mr. Gibson was introduced to Dr. Wallich, with the view of arranging the districts which it would be most advisable to explore, means of transit, &c.. Preliminaries having been settled, a start up country was made on July The journey was not a pleasant one, his life being frequently in danger and provisions short. On arriving at the Khasya Hills, work was com menced in reality as soon as the weather would permit, and the first collection of plants was sent 011' August 17, 1836. By the end of December, 101 baskets of plants, generally Orchids, had been forwarded to Dr. Wallich at Calcutta, by whom they were sent on to England; and in addition to these a large collection of tree and other seeds was also sent home. On returning to Chatsworth, Mr. Gibson had charge of the exotic department.
