Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from William Henry Lang returning a letter from Abercrombie Anstruther Lawson (not attached) and remarking that it is great news than the last great gaps in the life history scheme of the the fern Pteridophyta are being filled up. He discusses his duties during term time and mentions that he has been in touch with Cormack, remarking that it might be useful to keep in touch with him although they have been in touch with the Royal Aircraft Factory since July. He also discusses examination dates, asking Bower to let him know of the proposed dates for Glasgow as he suspects that there might be a clash with his medical examinations in Manchester.
