Abstract

I AM rather astonished at the criticism of my use of the term mineraliser in my book on the “Economic Geology of the United States,” made by a reviewer in a recent number of NATURE. Surely the sanction of the Century, Webster, and Worcester dictionaries, besides several scientific works, should be considered as warranting my use of the term, unless some very serious objection can be urged.
