TitleLetter from Thomas Davies, British Museum (Natural History), Cromwell Road, London, to Henry B[owman] Brady
Date15 November 1886
DescriptionSends Brady fragments of supply numbers 437 and 438, but had not been able to find number 512 (which had likely gone to another institution). Admits that since it had been so long since Brady had left materials at the British Museum, he no longer remembered what Brady wanted him to do with them. Has an indistinct memory of Brady wanting to know whether there was any indication of the presence of volcanic minerals in his sections.
