TO

SIR RODERICK I. MURCHISON,

K.C.B. F.R.S.

Director-General of the Geological Survey of Great Britain and Ireland.

My Dear Sir Roderick,

To no one can a new volume on Scottish

Geology be more fitly inscribed than to you, to whom Scottish Geology owes so much; nor perhaps can such an inscription come with greater appropriateness than from one who has worked with you, hammer in hand, over many a league of Highland ground, and who is further bound to you by many acts of courtesy and kindness. You are of course in no way responsible for the opinions expressed in the following chapters. That they may sometimes be at variance with

vi

your well-known views of the same subjects would only serve, if need were, as an additional motive for offering to you this expression of respect and esteem.

Believe me to remain,

Yours very truly,

ARCHIBALD GEIKIE.

GEOLOGICAL SURVEY, AYR.

2d June, 1865.
