Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from Robert Kidston concerning papers, fossil specimens and plates belonging to the late David Thomas Gwynne-Vaughan which his wife, Helen Charlotte Isabella Gwynne-Vaughan, had asked to be passed on to Bower. For safety reasons Kidston has decided to bring them to Bower in person, rather than sending.

He expects William Henry Lang to visit during the Christmas holidays, when they plan to continue their work on asteroxylon mackiei, which he finds is a far more complex plant than rhynia.
