Transcription information




There is no doubt that this Paper is original, but its contents are too meagre for publication in the journal; I would suggest that it be kept back till we receive further communications from Mr Wallace with which an extract from it may be then incorporated.1

Woodbine Parish

24th March 1855


1. This short note was written on the back of a letter to Woodbine Parish from secretary of the Royal Geographical Society H. Norton Shaw (WCP3586.3485).
