MISCELLANEOUS PAPERS RELATING TO ANTHROPOLOGY. 667 and was examined by a number of persons possessing respectable scien- titic attainments. As far as I am aware, however, neither its visible characteristics, nor its history, or its historical associations have ever been carefully studied by any conversant with American archa'ology. This carved stone was found at the point marked a in the accompanying map. For myself, while undertaking- to comment upon this interesting memento of a past age, T must at the outset acknowledge my want of qualifications for the purpose, and explain that my object is rather to suggest than to dogmatize, and to give such small assistance to the learned as is comprised in scraps of information which T have been able to obtain from various sources. A tolerable knowledge of the history of Charlotte County and of the province, and an imperfect memory and record of the contents of several letters received from various persons upon thei)rincipal subject, are all of some service in furthering my purjiose. The letters whicli weri' written to assist me in preparing a jiaper upon the stone, subse- quently read before the Natural I^istory Society of New Brunswick, an association not now in existence, were unfortunately destroyed in the great fire of St. John. The paper itself was preserved, and em- bodies at least a portion of the contents of the letter. Opinion, at the time of discovery, was somewhat divided, both in regard to the nation- ality of the workman ^^.^?^^s.^^^^'v^ by wiioin the stone was carved and also in re- spect to the object of Mf^^-Mj."? \ ^\ the work.
