Description

The decision given to him by the Committee is not what he expected and he wishes to see some extracts from the reports. The fossils he studies were sent from the Basel Museum with the cooperation of William Henry Flower. He has examined the fossils so intently for their sakes. He has received two letters form the Basel Museum enquiring when the paper should be published.
