The inscription on the first box reads: ‘Brought from "les derniers Rochers’" of Mr. Blanc by Jas. Balma [sic] in De Saussurès [sic] ascent, given by him to Dr. Paccard and by the Guide Julien Devousassoud his son in Law, to J. Auldjo on their return from the summit of that Mountain, the 9th Augt. 1827.’
