Writing to Youmans that he is sending the last corrected revise of his lecture as asking for the earliest insertion into the magazine, continuing that he will be giving his lecture on Human Automatism at Belfast on the 27th “which wil be rather supplemental to, thatn an repetition of my Glasgow lecture. If it is well reported (as I expect it will be) in one of the Belfast papers, would a revised Report be of any value to you?” Carpenter was noted for his research in botany, microscopy, zoology and physiology and was a co-leader of the research team in 1868-70 on the deep sea scientific expedition aboard the “Lightning” and “Challenger.” Youmans was the founder of “Popular Science Monthly’ and planned the “International Scientific Series,” he was a noted lecturer on science and author of several works.
