Description

Sectional Committee: Geology

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions. All the illustrations should be reproduced and he thinks it would add to the paper's value if the authors would prepare two hypothetical restored sketches; one dorsal view and one ventral view of the skeleton. Thinks this a most remarkable new departure in the methods of palaeontological research, and considers the result most valuable.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1904].

Endorsed on verso as received 8 June 1903.
