Berkeley - [Birckner], Victor. Young German, studied with Pfeffer at Leipzig; has worked on the fruit farm of J. H. Barber ten miles up the Carmel Valley.  Barber gets no time for botany now, but he is making money on his fruit which goes to New York.  Birkner collected native plants on the Berwick Ranch of Barber and has a genuine interest evidently in the native botany and has brought me a list of plants "collected on or near the Berhwick Ranch March - July, 1910." Birckner, as so many, was much troubled by Poison Oak.  He used soda in hot water as a wash which :::::::::  Augus 20, 1910. he says prevented it from spreading - "kept if down".  An indian told him to wash with a decoction of Solanum xanti (umbelliferum) foliage adding a little salt. - And I may add that Professor Hilgard told me last night that the scarlet (autumnal) leaves would not injure any one if eaten.  The theory that a person can be made immune by eating the greeen leaves is fallacious.  Miss Day told me of (I thik Mrs. Stringham) eating the green leaves three or four days before her wedding.  As a result she was take  out of bed
