“On New Year's Eve members and friends of the College Field Club [...] had the pleasure of listening to a scholarly address from Mr A.H. Ware, criticising the recent theories of the evolution of plants and the methods of classification proposed by Messrs Church and Jeffreys.

[...]

The lecture was illustrated by a series of excellent lantern slides. In seconding the vote of thanks accorded to the lecturer, Mr H.J. Morgan illustrated the danger of classification by development by examples from the insect world.”
