To the Royal Society 19 March 1855
I am of opinion that Mr Horner’s Account of the researches made in the alluvial deposits of Ægypt, should be printed in the Philosophical Transactions,1 as the means of permanently recording valuable observations; and which observations probably will become in future times of still higher value.—
Charles Darwin Down March 19th 1855.
P.S. Figure 3 was not sent to me.
Recommends publication of Leonard Horner’s account of researches in alluvial deposits of Egypt [Philos. Trans. R. Soc. Lond. 145 (1855): 105–38]. It contains valuable observations which will probably become of still higher value in future.
