TitleCopy letter from Michael Foster, to Mr [George Francis] Scott-Elliot, Newton, Dumfries
Date21 December 1895
Description'Dear Mr Scott-Elliot,
No it was not a slip. The unique specimens can go into the one set, but the second set is otherwise to be as nearly equal as possible. That was not the point which troubled us, but rather that you had not made up this second set. I saw [George] Murray however on Thursday I trust that soon every thing will be arranged.
Yours truly(signed) M. Foster'.
