TitleLetter from Robert Jameson, 21 Royal Circus, [Edinburgh], to William Buckland, Oxford
Date18 August 1823
DescriptionJameson has received the copy of Buckland's work upon his return and gives his thanks. He hopes that Buckland may visit soon. Refers to a 'very unfair' notice of Ami Boué's 'Essai géologiques sur l'Ecosse' in the Edinburgh Review and he anticipates remarks from Buckland. Notes that Brochart is expected and asks if Conybeare has given up on the red sandstone controversy with Mr Weaver.
