Referee report by C. R. Darwin on 'On the Arrangement of the Foliation and Cleavage of the Rocks of the North of Scotland' by on D. Sharpe
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.
