TitleLetter from A[lfred] J[ohn] Jukes-Browne, Dinton, Salisbury, to [Henry Bowman] Brady
Date5 May 1890
DescriptionWas pleased to receive Brady's letter of 11 April before he left Teignmouth for the Vale of Wardour. Was glad to learn that Brady's winter in 'the land of mummies' [Egypt] had done him good. Tells Brady he is perfectly welcome to make any use he likes of the results of his 'labourious examination' of Jukes-Browne's Barbadian rocks. Asks him to say which rocks he will take so he [Jukes-Browne] can send the right notes. Will send a little box containing two samples received from Barbados during the winter, which were not exactly rainwash but the loosest beds Jukes-Browne's friend could find. Their paper 'gets on by degrees', that a large part of it is written, and that he will send it to the Geological Society in November. Intends to publish a fullsize geological map of Barbados, and will take the risk of paying for it if the Barbadian legislature chooses not to. Is slow with the work because a new edition of his 'Building of the British Isles' was called for, and his official work has to come first.
