To Leonard Jenyns   [May–September 1842]

Summary

Glad to hear that LJ will repeat his notes to Gilbert White’s [Natural history of] Selborne [1843] in a separate work.

Critical of G. R. Gray’s attaching his own name to Furnarius cunicularius [in Birds, pp. 65–6]. Strickland’s nomenclature laws are needed to check egoism.

To Leonard Jenyns   [9 May 1842]

Summary

Is sending fish skins and bottles off to Cambridge Philosophical Society.

Fish numbers [of Zoology], now finished, give CD satisfaction when he doubts whether he ought to have applied for Government money.

Wishes Thomas Bell would finish his part [Reptiles].

CD has just corrected last page of index of Coral reefs.
