IN a letter under the above heading which you did me the honour to print in your issue of May 21, vol. lxviii. P. 53, I gave the results of the chemical examination of a sample of dust collected from the roof of Bayham Abbey, Lamberhurst, after the dust storm of February 22, and sent to me by the kindness of Lord Camden, and I stated that it would be interesting to compare its characters with those of the dust, presumably of African origin, which was observed to fall in the district of Taormina by Sir Arthur Rücker, and was the subject of an interesting communication to NATURE by Prof. Judd in 1901 (vol. lxiii. p. 514).
