Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from Daniel Paul Montague thanking Bower for informing him of the vacancy at Kew. He has kept up his Russian in case he might secure such a post. His plans are to translate the excellent work by Palladin on physiology as there is nothing comparable, only the elementary text by Triniviazev and the 'pièces de résistance' of Pfeffer and Jost.

Kew offers the possibility to broaden his botanical knowledge and has opportunities for research. He feels his time at Belfast has given him as much teaching experience in two years as many men get in ten. There is a negative factor in that the salary offered is less than he currently receives and he hopes it will increase.

He expresses his grief at the death of Davie.
