I HAVE read with much interest in NATURE, vol. xxi. p. 557, Prof. Lankester's remarks on the question—Does Chlorophyll decompose Carbonic Acid? and having many years ago made experiments on that and kindred topics, should be much obliged if you will do me the favour to reprint the following extract from a paper I published in the Philosophical Magazine (December, 1872, p. 425, &c.). This is also in my scientific memoirs, p. 409, 410.
