TitleLetter from H[enry] B[rougham] Guppy, 1 Eagle Avenue, Tottenham, to [Henry Bowman Brady]
Date7 May 1890
DescriptionHopes Brady recovered his health after his 'trip up the Nile'. Looks forward to seeing his paper on the South Sea Island deposits, and hopes it will be the means of bringing him [Brady] material from other localities. Believes Mr Lister, who had been at the Tongan islands in a surveying vessel, ought to have found similar deposits there; that a paper of his was read some time before at the Geographical Society; and that Lister was still there. Last two pages include a list of specimens from the Solomon islands.
