Seawell, a former pupil of Ewart's, writes as a teacher of biology at a State Normal School in Warrensburg, Missouri, where he has recently been conducting general botany and zoology research. In particular he has been investigating the ecological relations of the life-forms of a series of small freshwater lakes in the area. He would like to know how he might go about studying for the degree of Doctor of Science from the University of Edinburgh.
Farquharson asks Ewart what should be done with the balance left from paying the MacGillivray Memorial Fund. He proposes expending it on the Class of Botany at the University of Edinburgh in some way.
