                                beds folded by ordinary mechanical forces,
should have been adopted, when axes of 
foliation or some other term might have 
easily have been found, which would not have 
been confounded with ordinary lines of 
elevation, & yet would not have precluded 
the idea of the foliation having resulted 
indirectly from mechanical action, - as 
seems to be the author’s view. -
Notwithstanding these foregoing objections, from the 
novelty &, as it appears to me, importance 
of the subject, I am of decided 
opinion that Mr Sharpe’s memoir ought 
to be published in the Transactions.
Apologising for the length of this Report 
I remain, Sir,
Your obedient servant 
Charles Darwin 
R.S. [text?]
To the Chairman of 
the Committee of Papers.
