Elwes reports that Bateson did not have any particular ideas about the Iceland wool, but that he invited Elwes to read a short paper on the subject at the meeting of the British Association at Portsmouth, which prompted a discussion.

He remarks that Colonel Malcolm of Poltalloch has offered him an island which he is going to visit the following week.
