Notices to Correspondents





Phrenology, Anatomy

    States 'we have received various communications upon Dr Spurzheim's system—or rather upon the controversies to which it has given rise. Two of these now before us are ably written, but nevertheless inadmissible. They are opposite in their views of the subject, but equally objectionable on account of frequent and invidious personal reflections. We have no objection to another paper on Craniology, but only on condition that the subject be treated exclusively upon its own merits—as a philosophical discussion, and not as a party quarrel' (230).
