Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from W Bateson stating that he feels that JMF Drummond has not had the necessary practical knowledge and experience to become the head of the new breeding station, despite the fact that he is a good all round man. He states, however, that the field of candidates is a weak one and he knows of no one else he should prefer to Drummond but that his opinion is that the appointment should wait.
