WITHERING (William, 1741-1799, Botanist, Geologist, Chemist, Physician and first Systematic Investigator of the Bioactivity of Digitalis)

Fine Letter Signed to Davies GIDDY (1767-1839, Cornish Engineer, Author and Politician) saying that he expects that he is in Oxford so he won't see him so he is addressing "a few lines to you to say that i shall leave a fine Specm of the aerated Barytes with Miss Russell for your use, which I hope will be aceptable, and its now become a scarce and valuable fossil. My son desires me to say that he did not forget your commission about the Bow, but having clapped his Wafer over the figures expressive of its power, he had again to write about it, and to his second letter he has had no reply, so that it is probably finished, but at any rate you may rest assured that it shall be forwarded as soon as we get homw. We were pretty successful in our Botanlresearches in Portugal, and shall be able to enrich the Flora of Europe with several non-descript species, of these we have made drawings & intend to communicate them from time to time to the Linnn Society. Kind Mrs Oliver is from home, so that I shall not see either of my fair pupils in Cornwall. Tomorrow we move slowly onward, meaning to examine the Stream work at Larnan & the mine at Polgooth as we pass. We shall coast it upwards to Southampton, Portsmouth and the Isle of Wight, & mean to reach Birmingham a little before Midsr. If we return through Oxford we shall enquire for you there but possibly you may favour us with a line at the Post Office Southampton to say what time you leave Oxford ...", 2 sides 4to., with original autograph address leaf with seal removed, Falmouth, 11th May
