Abstract

SIR HARRY JOHNSTON is wrong in suggesting (NATURE, December 15) that the incompleteness of my monograph of the okapi is due to the “financial control” (presumably he means the trustees of the British Museum) disliking the expense of publishing a volume of text. The full expenditure required was approved by the trustees when I was director of the museum. The absence of any further text than that which accompanies the plates and figures in the volume, as issued, is solely due to the fact that I have not provided such further text.
