Cannot see how J. W. Dawson can accuse Hooker of asserting a subsidence of Arctic America. Much of evidence for subsidence during glacial period will prove false as it largely rests on ice action which is more and more viewed as subaerial. Dawson is biased against Darwinism. Suggests Greenland may have been repopulated after glacial period extinguished flora, by migration in sea-currents. Max Müller's view of origin of language is weakest part of his book [see 3752]. Would like to examine the rare Cypripedium hirsutissimum.
