In the year 1852 John Brown, of Stanway, published a paper on the Copford deposits (Q.J.G.S., vol. viii, p. 184), and in this includes a letter from George R. Waterhouse referring to two ‘Beaver’ teeth and the metacarpal of a Bear. One of these teeth is described and figured, and is said to differ from the beaver in being larger and also in the direction of the enamel folds. This tooth is preserved in the British Museum of Natural History at South Kensington, and I have recently had the opportunity of examining it; but the second tooth I have been unable to discover, concerning which G. R. Waterhouse says it “scarcely differs from that of the European species”.
