1 This passage, and indeed nearly the whole of the Chapter, is borrowed from Theophrastus, Hist. Plant. B. i. c. 9.
3 Gramen. See B. xviii. c. 67, and B. xxiv. c. 118.
4 Atriplex. See B. xx. c. 83.

10 Fée thinks that the ocimum of Pliny is not the basil of the moderns, the Ocimum basilicum of the naturalists. The account, however, here given would very well apply to basil.
11 The Heliotropium Europæum of botany. See B. xxii. c. 19.
12 These assertions, Fée says, are not consistent with modern experience.
13 See c. 45 of this Book.
