Handwritten letter from the cousin of Rev. Augustin Ley, Sibyl Gee, to an unknown recipient. Ley had promised to leave all of his botanical collections to the University of Birmingham during the life of Hillhouse. She informs the recipient that several botanical works are also left to the University, also two botanical cabinets. There is a list of the names of 6 works and their volumes left to the University. Both Sybil, the recipient and Riddlesdale are in agreement that it is best for the collection to be in the best condition before its rehoming. Asks about the arrangements of the move.
