Scope and Content

Letter to Frederick Orpen Bower from Margaret Benson thanking Bower for sending such a big bundle of papers and asking Bower if he would sponsor her latest paper entitled The Microsporangia on Pollen Sacs of Acteranguium Grievi, (unpublished)which she would like to get published in Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Edinburgh , (1788-1979). The paper is a sequel to her paper entitled Sphcerostoma, (1913) which was sponsored by R Kidston. However, the new paper concentrates on sporangia and she feels that Bower would be a more suitable person. She asks if Bower would care to see the text of the paper as she does not want to work out the detail of the figures for the paper if it is not to be published. She would also like to show Bower the plant specimens she has been working on for the paper.
