Description're Mr Newton's plates
I did not mean smaller in scale, but that the whole of the photo is not shown. All three are cut down more or less, In one the fossil itself is not cut, but only the shadow; in both the others the fossil is cut - one very slightly, (about 1/8 in [inch]) which however shd [should] be rectified if it can be without much expense, - the other very seriously'.
