The following letters from Mr. A. D. Bartlett, F.Z.S., were read at the meeting, and ordered to be printed after the paper by Dr. Birch:

"Zoological Society's Gardens,           
  "Regent's Park, London, N.W.,
''February 26, 1875.

    "Dear Sir,

"In reply to your note, I consider the figure of the dog A closely resembles the Dalmatian Hound in form, and probably the Gazelle Hounds are descendants of this breed. B well represents a dog found in the North of China, barely distinguishable from the Esquimaux, which may be regarded as half wolf. We have also the Wild Dog of Australia (the Dingo), not in any respect different in form or general character from the figure B. The form of C is doubtless that of the Mastiff; and D appears to be a smaller and probably a pet house dog; it appears to have had its ears cropped,

"Yours faithfully,               
"A. D, BARTLETT."

''March 8, 1875.

    "Dear Sir,

"In reply to your letter of this day, you have my permission to use the remarks I made upon the subject of the dogs in any way you may think proper. I am glad to hear of the 'Dog of the White Antelope.' Last year I was in Hamburgh on the arrival of a large collection of living animals from Africa, in which collection were many Gazelles and other Antelopes, together with 16 or more Giraffes. With this large lot were many attendants, who brought with them two of the dogs used for the capture of the Gazelles and other of the Antelopes; these dogs are in form like the one figured on your paper.

"Yours faithfully,           
"A. D. BARTLETT."
