Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from George Gerald Henderson thanking Bower for his letter of support and informing him that the University court would probably consider the whole organisation of the department before making an appointment to the post of professor of chemistry. He mentions the support he has received from prominent chemists but wonders how the Secretary for Scotland will view the matter and worries that as he has no political influence, the Secretary might form the opinion that Henderson is not a fit man for the job.
