Excerpt from Principles of Comparative Physiology
The Author cannot bring his task to a conclusion, without ex pressing the great obligations under which he lies to his friend, Mr. T. H. Huxley, not only for many valuable suggestions, but also for the readiness which he has o... n all occasions evinced, to impart to him whatever he might seek from his own extensive stores of original and acquired information; nor without paying his tribute of regard to the memory of his lamented friend, Mr. G. Newport, whose premature death has deprived British Science of one of its most ardent and disinterested votaries, at a time when he was beginning to reap, in the appreciation of his discoveries on the Impregnation of the Amphibia,l the credit so justly due to his laborious, accurate, and sagacious researches, in the new field to the cultivation of which he had latterly applied himself.
