Handwritten letter Professor George S. West from Harold Stuart Thompson. Thompson is writing to say that he has enclosed a plant cutting from Feb 12th and for West to return it at his leisure. There is a side-note that ten years ago he should not have sold for £250! He apologises that he only has three, not four, cabinets of dried plants, having dispensed with the fourth. Talks about what is in each of the three cabinets, their sizes and prices, e.g.: the British collection and European collection and their conditions.
