Observations and Reflections on Geology : Intended to Serve as an Introduction to the Catalogue of His Collection of Extraneous Fossils (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Observations and Reflections on Geology: Intended to Serve as an Introduction to the Catalogue of His Collection of Extraneous Fossils Will you be so good as to inform me whether the Volume which you put into my hands, on the day of the last Oration, he intended as a present to the College or Museum, or a loan similar to the other papers which Captain Sir Everard Home lent, to permit a transcript to be made, some years since? I merely wished to know whether I ought to present it as a Donation at the next Board of Curators, or report upon it if otherwise. I beg leave to acquaint you that the above-mentioned Volume is imperfect, containing only Part the First of Mr. Hunter's Introduction to a History of Fossils and that there was or is a Second Part, of about the same quantity of manuscript and that this manuscript was one among the last that Mr. Hunter revised, and made large additions to, a short time previous to his death, is evident from the fact that a considerable part is in my own handwriting, with Mr. Hunter's subsequent corrections and additions.
