Scope and Content

This file is taken up with incomplete or unidentified pieces of correspondence and other minutiae. Many of these are wrapped in an 1829 German advertisement for a Professor Wilhelm Rapp's monograph on polyps. They vary from accounts and tax and militia notices to advertisements and calling cards. There is a subsection of memoranda about a new charter for the Royal Society of Edinburgh and the Huttonian Collection. There is also a small cache of notes and notices about the Wernerian Society.
