TitleLetter from Henry Benjamin Wheatley, to George Gabriel Stokes, regarding a paper 'Description of Parkeria and Loftusia, two gigantic types of arenaceous foraminifera' by William Benjamin Carpenter and Henry Bowman Brady
Date7 August 1869
DescriptionThe figures of Loftusia by Henry Bowman Brady are very different to the figures of Parkeria by William Benjamin Carpenter. William Benjamin Carpenter has suggested communication with Henry Bowman Brady, as Carpenter cannot give any instruction, and gives an address for this. Note by George Gabriel Stokes states that this has been done, 28 August 1869.

G West [?] has enquired about the plates for Parker [?], 'as he is now rather disengaged'.
