Abstract[None. Work starts as:]
A large collection of Irish Annelidans has been put in my possession by my friend Wm. Thompson, Esq. of Belfast. The collection was made partly by Dr. Drummond, Messrs. Ball, Hyndman, and Allman, but principally by Mr. Thompson himself, who had determined several of the species, and was well aware of the distinctions of others. As however the state of his eyes forbade him the long use of the microscope, he declined entering on their minuter examination, — a task which I have too willingly undertaken, for I was loath to lose this opportunity of having my name associated with those of the most zealous and distinguished cultivators of Irish zoology.
