Mr. H. O. Forbes's Discoveries in the Chatham Islands

Article metrics


REFERRING to my former note (supra, p. 101) I cannot find that I have been guilty of even “a slight confusion of dates,” as Mr. Forbes says (supra, p. 126). On his last visit to Cambridge he told me he had forgotten the name I had before written, and asked me to renew my suggestion. I thank him for the kind terms in which he speaks of me, but I must be allowed to disclaim the opinion “that the Chatham Island form was nearer to Aphanapteryx than the latter was to Erythromachus.”
