There can, I apprehend, be no doubt that the present valuable Part of Dr. Carpenter's Researches on the Foraminifera, though in my opinion somewhat too lengthy, should be published in full in the Transactions, in conformity with the previous Parts. The memoir will require ample illustrations.


Your obedient sevt

Ch. Darwin
