Reference numberMS/787/1/64
TitleLetter from G Firth Franks, Harrison College, Barbados, to [Alfred John] Jukes-Browne
Date12 May 1890
DescriptionWill send Jukes-Browne 'some of the exact stuff' he wanted, a fine wash from the face of a section of [illegible] earth (very calcareous) and entirely unmixed with wash from coral. Encloses a little pinch of it with this letter. Has examined sandstone beds about Bathsheba station for fossils but found no trace of any within them. Found a raised beach where 'shells were all apparently living species.' Hopes Jukes-Browne's health is improved.
