To the Geological Society of London 4 October 1842
I am of opinion that everything of importance in “Mr Newbolds Paper on Rock Basins in the bed of the Toombuddra”1 in “Mr J. Phillips three communications on some caves, on the discovery of an ancient causeway with Elephants bones beneath it, and on pumice found in sinking a well,”2 & in “Mr Consul Hunts Report on the destruction of Praya in the Azores by an earthquake,”3 is fully given in the Proceedings, and therefore that these communications need not be printed in the Transactions
Charles Darwin October 4th 1842
