Kent's Cavern *


    BEFORE entering on this, their tenth Report, the committee desire to express their deep sense of the great loss they have sustained in the decease of Prof. Phillips. No member was more regular in his attendance at the meetings of the Committee or felt a livelier interest in the investigation with which they are charged. On March 18, 1874—little more than a month before his lamented death—though suffering from a severe cold, he visited the cavern, when he carefully inspected those branches of it which had been explored, and expressed his admiration of the clearness and importance of the evidence bearing on the question of human antiquity which had been obtained.
