Not illustrated. 1857 edition. Excerpt: ...your attention to the following extraordinary conduct. A little while ago there appeared in the 'Intelligencer' a list of my duplicates and desiderata. Among others I received a note from a person wishing for certain of my duplicates, and offering to return some of my desiderata. According to his wish, I sent good specimens of the insects required, and, to my great astonishment, received in return--not my desiderata, but my own insects, as rubbish! and of course the box unpaid.

I should feel very much obliged if you would subjoin your opinion of this shabby conduct, and remain, Yours most respectfully, Apamea. PS. I have inclosed his note, as proof of my good faith, hoping that it may put you on your guard against such gentry for the future, as I assure you it will THE GRADUS. TO THE EDITOR OF THE 'INTELLI-GENCER.' Sir, --We have been considering amongst ourselves, and other members of the Entomological Societies of our respective Universities, the best way to accomplish the publication of a ' Gradus of Entomological names, as regards the Lepidoptera, ' for which we have seen such frequent calls in your columns, without any satisfactory response having as yet appeared. If we do not see by your next week's paper that any other person or Society has already commenced such a work for actual publication, we will engage, to the best of our ability, to supply the want. We expect that our proposed book will be published by the Councils of the Entomological Societies of the two Universities, but certainly by members of those Societies. Should we, as we propose, carry out our scheme, we will send you a further statement of our plan of.
