WILL you kindly allow me to correct an apparent breach of official etiquette and act of discourtesy in my last week's letter? I should have said that only two geologists prominently interested in the question at issue had seen my evidence; for, of course, Mr. H. W. Bristow, F.R.S., Director, of the Geological Survey of England and Wales, has been kept fully en rapport with my work, and has several times visited me at Brandon. I am anxious that no statement of mine should appear to slight so eminent a geologist and so considerate a friend.
