In this four-page handwritten letter, Buckland talks about an excavation in Ely, Cambridgeshire. Henslow was working on it at the time but Buckland also knew the site. Buckland goes into detail about the strata of the "Great Gault Pit," and sketched the pit for Henslow (in pencil, with labels in ink). Buckland also talks about other geology issues as well as a skeleton of a megatherium (an ancient giant sloth) that Henslow found.
