Vol. VI.-JANUARY, 1872.-No. 1.


My Dear Friend : — On the point of starting for the Deep-Sea Dredging expedition, for which you have so fully provided, and which I trust may prove to be one of the best rewards for your devotion to the interests of the Coast Survey, I am desirous to leave in yonr hands a document which may be very compromising for me, but which I nevertheless am determined to write in the hope of showing within what limits natural history has advanced toward that point of maturity when science may anticipate the discovery of facts.

If there is, as I believe to be the case, a plan according to which the affinities among animals and the order of their succession in time were determined from the beginning, and if that plan is reflected in the mode of growth, and in the geographical distribution of all living beings; or, in other words, if this world of ours is the work of intelligence, and not merely the product of force ami matter, the human mind, as a part of the whole, should so chime with it, that, from what is known, it may reach the unknown ; and if this be so the amount of information thus far gathered should, within the limits of errors which the imperfection of our knowledge renders unavoidable, be sufficient to foretell what

'Communicated by Prof. I'eircc from advance sheets of Bulletin of the Museum of Comparative Zoology. No. 3. A Letter concerning Deep-Sea Dredginga, addressed to Professor Benjamin Peirce, Superintendent United States Coast Survey, by Louis Agassis. Cambridge. Mass., December 2, 1871.

Entered according to Act of Congress. In the year 1872, by the Peabody Academy or Science, in the Office of the Librarian of Congress, at Washington.
