                                observations & views of others are 
spoken of. I quite agree with 
the remarks in pencil (signed 
J F W H) to the effect that there 
are some passages of this nature 
that the Society cannot consent
to print. I have made a 
note (opposite p. 58 of Vol 7) res-
pecting the manner in which the 
observations of Mr Jones (an
American <s>(<\s>attached to the Japan 
expedition) are mentioned. All 
that is said is justifiable if 
only the phraseology were slightly 
altered. There are also in 
the Paper here and there sen-
tences that would be improved 
by less freedom in the style 
of composition.
I am, My dear Sir,
Yours very truly 
J. Challis
