Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from Robert Chapman Davie discussing different schools of thought in Glasgow and Edinburgh and telling Bower how he feels pleasure as he has not had to abandon any of his Glasgow-taught theories in order to adapt to work in Edinburgh which he believes vindicates both teachings and gives a "reasoned and consistant" view of both Cryptogams and Phanerogams.
