comment 'from' vs. 'by'
In general, adjuncts and modifiers are not particularly choosy. For instance, most nouns (referring the physical objects) can take the adjunct "on the ground" (e.g., "the book on the ground"). Complements are generally more selective (e.g., "an interest in..." not "an interest about..."), and while nouns don't often select complements, I think that this would be such a case.

comment Difference beween requests “can”, “could” and “may”?
Tense and time are not completely bound up together. Past tense verbs usually have a past-time reference, but they don't need to. Often they are conditional, such as "if you went there tomorrow...".
