Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from James Montagu Frank Drummond in which he informs Bower that his demobilisation from the army is complete and that he is at Bower's disposal. He states that he proposes to come to Glasgow around 1 April 1919 unless Bower would like him to be there earlier. He discusses his likely teaching load, asking if the physiology course is still run on the same basis as before and what the topics for the summer term were to be this year and whether there is to be a BSc elementary class. He tells Bower that he will be delighted to do his part of the practical botany book as soon as Bower likes. He went to Kew and was successful in getting most of his Judaean plants identified. He tells Bower that Alfred Barton Rendle had booked him to speak to the Linnean Society in May 1919 and asks Bower if this is a feasible date. He explains that the other possible date, 3 April 1919, would be too soon to read his paper and that he is expecting his other material to arrive from Cairo soon so he cannot delay the paper on the Judaean material. He says that he will not push the matter if Bower is oppposed. He states that he will be donating samples of his Judaean material to Kew as they do not have many specimens from there and offers to do the same for Glasgow should Bower wish it.
