                                the existence of the several great arches 
extending across Scotland can be accepted 
as at all certain. I should have 
hesitated in advising the publication 
of this paper, had not the places, in 
which a vertical & fan-like arrangement 
of the folia occur, been separately marked 
on the map; for such facts seem liable 
to little error:- Moreover, statements by 
Macculloch & other Scotch authors are used 
by Mr. Sharpe, & these support his general 
inferences. If we consider in the 
author’s sections, simply the fan-like 
layers, & neglect as doubtful, the broad 
intermediate districts with convoluted 
& less steeply inclined layers, we may,
I think, see evidence of arrangements,
