Excerpt from Cistula Entomologica, Vol. 2: With Eleven Plates Since the publication of the " Trichopterygia Illustrata" various criticisms on that, work have appeared in the periodicals devoted to Natural History; these I have hitherto refrained from noticing, in order to make my reply more comprehensive than it could have been at any earlier period. Many of the remarks contained in these critical notices have been very complimentary, and it is gratifying to find that the faults pointed out apply entirely to errors in the letter-press, pseudo-latinisms, objections to the style of the figures, or differences of opinion as to the comparative merits of certain authors whose works I have reviewed; while the scientific and only important portions of my work have been unassailed, and by letters which I have received from many of the most distinguished Entomologists of the present time, as well as by the published remarks of others, appear to have met with universal approval. With regard to the first of those faults which I have named, viz, errors in the letter-press, which I regret to say are far too numerous, I feel that I must take the whole blame upon myself. I foolishly consented to revise the sheets as they were struck off, a task which their author should never undertake, since his perfect knowledge of the idea intended to be expressed and his capability of repeating almost every line by heart engender a carelessness, however unintentional, to which a stranger would not be liable, and of which I now suffer the evil consequences.
