NOTE TO MR. FRANCIS DARWIN'S PAPER.1

I beg leave to say that I have witnessed almost all the facts described in the foregoing paper, and can vouch for their accuracy. To the best of my judgment, the whole case is a most remarkable one, and well deserves the attention of physiologists.

CHARLES DARWIN.
