Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from Helen Charlotte Isabella Gwynne-Vaughan thanking him for his approval of her plan to donate David Thomas Gwynne-Vaughan's fern slides to the University of Glasgow and discussing the return of fern samples to Bower. She remarks that the fern Pteris [panamicta] was the last that Gwynne-Vaughan had worked on and that his unfinished slides had been taken by William Henry Lang to complete.
