IN the interests of Science, of scientific discussions, and of scientific men let me be allowed to protest very earnestly against the manner in which Dr. Carpenter has thought fit to reply in your columns to the defence which Mr. Croll made against the representation of his views, given in NATURE, vol. ix. p. 423. I take much interest in the subject under discussion—the great fundamental cause of the distribution of heat over the globe, and am most anxious to arrive at the true solution of the problem—a result, however, which will be indefinitely postponed if such letters as that of Dr. Carpenter in NATURE, vol. x. p. 62, are to become common.
