Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from Robert Kidston regarding a suggested meeting of themselves and William Henry Lang. He is actually expecting a visit from Lang at the same time, so he has to decline the meeting wiith Bower as he is so busy and has little time to travel. Lang will tell Bower about the work he and Kidston have been doing on asteroxylon. As Lang's opinion may differ from his over the relative interest in the plant, he suggests that Bower ask him. He comments on work being done by the Government.
