Abstract

CIRCUMSTANCES have prevented my replying earlier to Dr. Rae's letter in NATURE of November 27 (p. 81). The situation of the ice described in my letter of November 6 (p. 5) precludes the possibility of its having been a remainder from last winter's snow, since it was only some fifteen hundred feet above the valley of Chamounix, and exposed during the summer months to daily sunshine. In fact, the mid-day sun only just failed to reach it on the 17th of October.
