To John Tyndall   4 December [1878]

The transcript of this letter is not yet available online.

Has observed, perhaps erroneously, that certain plants were excited to movement by a prolonged high note on the bassoon. Would now like to try a siren and asks JT to bring one from the Royal Institution.
