Asks whether THH has written on affinities of Eocene cetacean Zeuglodon. Wants to cite it in 6th ed. of Origin as in some slight degree an intermediate form, but does not know how far he may venture.

Summary

Pleased by what THH says on cement glands and organs in higher Crustacea. Content to be moderately right.
