Scope and Contents

Herdman responds to Ewart's enquiries about himself by claiming that he had nothing to do with the HMS Challenger expedition, although he was one of Wyville Thomson's 'young men' at the 'Challenger Office'. He goes on to describe his work on the Tunicata collected on the voyage, and provides some more biographical information.
