In dio winter of 1865 it bocame oeocssai? for me, on acootint of some d Uturbance of my health, to seek a chang Qof Boene and climate, with rest from work. Europo waa proposed; but though there is much enjoyment for a nataralist in contact with the actire scientific life of the Old World, t Jioro is little iulc Uoctual nL Toward Bnutl I was drawn by a lifcloug desire. After tlra death of Spix, when a student of twenty years of age, I had been employed by Martina to dtscribe tlc Gs Uca they had brought back witli them li-om titeir celebrated Brazitiao journey. From tliat time, tlie wiish to etudy this buna in the regions where it belongs had been an erer-recurring thought with me ;a scheme deferred for want of opportunity, but never quite forgotten. Tlte fact that tlie Emperor of Brazil was deeply interested in all BcieatJG cundertakings, and had ezpreased a warm aympathy with my efiorta to establish a great zoological museum in this country, aiding mo even by sending oollections made expressly under his order for the purpoM, was an additional incentive. I knew that the head of the government would giro me every facility for my i Taatications.
