To Albert Gaudry   17 September [1866]

Summary

Thanks AG for Considérations générales [sur les animaux fossiles] de Pikermi [1866]. The observations on the various intermediate fossil forms seem most valuable.

To Albert Gaudry   27 May [1867]

Summary

Is much obliged for AG’s two memoirs ["Mémoire sur le reptile découvert par M. Frossard", Nouv. Arch. Mus. Hist. Nat. 3 (1867): 21–40; Bull. Soc. Géol. France 2d ser. 24 (1867): 397–400].

All "inosculating forms" are very interesting to CD.

To Albert Gaudry   21 January [1868]

Summary

Thanks AG for his essay on geology and Athenian history [see 5784].
