The following PDF file is an OCR copy of a scan taken from the William Bateson Archives at the Cambridge University Library, Cambridge, England. Original spellings were maintained, but spacings between some punctuation marks were eliminated. The pagination also was kept, so some lines and pages in the OCR file stop at different points rather than at the end of lines and end of pages.

Look for:
