FROM the preface and its date it will be seen that these 'Observations' were printed and ready for publication at the end of September last; and I intended that they should be issued as soon as I received notice of the Special Meeting which was ordered to be held early in October. Days rolled on; days became weeks, and yet no notice came; so at last I changed my mind, and resolved to withhold the paper till after the meeting. It was possible that there might be no need to publish it at all. At length on Thursday, Oct. 25, ten Curators met. One member of the committee on the Classed Catalogue moved the adoption of the report (see p. 17), and another member of the same committee seconded the proposal. Then we all talked. I observed that three years ago I circulated amongst the Curators reasons (see p. 6) which seemed to me fatal to any classed catalogue, and that I did not intend to waste time by repeating them. At length we divided, when five voted for the continuance of the Classed Catalogue and four against it, so that my belief (p. 31) was well founded.
