From H. N. Moseley   27 November 1881

Summary

Thanks CD for support in his election as Linacre Professor at Oxford.

J. Y. Buchanan, of the Challenger, says deep-sea red mud is fine because, like CD’s vegetable mould, it has been digested by worms and echinoderms.

Visited by John MacNeile Price, the son of CD’s friend from Chile, Mr Price; the son is now Surveyor General of Hong Kong.
