Description

Excerpt from Memoir on the Megatherium, and Other Extinct Gigantic Quadrupeds of the Coast of Georgia: With Observations on Its Geologic Features

I had been honored by an invitation from the National Institute, established at Washington, to read a paper before that body, on some subject con nected with the progress of science. Having accept ed that invitation, I was placed in the position of the traveller who had requested an interview with Mohammed Ali, the Pacha of Egypt. The traveller, not having previously arranged a subject of conver sation to be held with His Highness, was at fault, during his audience. Say something! Was the Viceroy's indulgent suggestion. There was, how ever, a high administrative import in that suggestion.

The wonderful organic remains which crowd and underlie the recent formation of the coast of Geor gia, seemed to me a proper subject for this occasion, as one about which something might be said.
