I HAD hoped that Mr. Holdsworth, in the rejoinder which he told me he was preparing to my former letter (NATURE, vol. xv. p. 55) would have confined himself to defending the assertions he had before made, or at most to rebutting the evidence I had adduced in reply to them. In this case I should have gladly left the matters at issue between him and me to the judgment of the public. Unfortunately he has thought it needful for the sake of the cause lie adopts to introduce some new assumptions and charges, conveyed in language of a rather vigorous kind, so that out of regard to the good opinion of your readers, I am driven again to trespass on their forbearance and yours. But in doing this I shall try to be as brief as possible, and however much my friend may have exceeded the limits of a rejoinder, not to follow his example.
