Race, Spontaneous Generation, Cultural Geography

    Wants to stop the 'Unity of Race' movement which has caused fierce disputes amongst 'half the people of Europe'. Wonders why different European races cannot 'mingle', pointing out the harmony between the ancient Briton, Roman, Saxon, and other European races in his own 'composition'. Concerned that the movement will make his body 'fall to pieces' or make him a 'victim to spontaneous generation'.
