“22nd November, 1921
The Secretary for Agriculture

I have the honour to transmit herewith the manuscript of a very comprehensive paper by Professor Schonland entitled ‘Introduction to South African Cyperaceae’ and I recommend that it be published as Memoir No. 3 of the Botanical Survey of South Africa…No English publication exists in which the morphology of the vegetative organs, the inflorescence of flowers is treated so thoroughly; hence the need for such a publication requires no further comment ” – I.B. Pole Evans: Director
