Abstract

Read by H.S Wintle, 12th April, 1864 .A Paper which I read before this Society, in November last, on what I was then pleased to consider, and still believe to be, post tertiary marine deposits, having called forth expressions of strong doubt with regard to the position I assigned to them in geological scale, and also to the mode of their origin, I here beg to furnish the data on which I base the conclusions therein set forth, and which I think will show that such conclusions are not so rash or premature as may have been imagined.
