3pp., 12mo. Bifolium. In good condition, lightly aged. He begins by thanking Ramsay 'for Copy of No 12 of the Scientific Roll, which I presented to the Club at our last meeting, and for which a vote of thanks was accorded to you'. He agrees with Ramsay that the 'subject of Phenological observation' is 'one of very considerable importance', but the Club has been 'so full of work of one kind and another that we have hardly had time to consider the matter' and it has 'not yet been taken up by the Club'. He will raise the subject, and thanks Ramsay for 'the reprint of your paper'. He has no doubt that the Club Librarian will be 'very glad to receive the “Garner” for our library each month'. Note: "The Scientific Roll: A Bibliography, Guide and Index to Climate. by Alexander Ramsay. Publication date 1884. " From the Ramsay papers.
