    Excerpt from Notes by a Naturalist on the Challenger, Being an Account of Various Observations Made During the Voyage of Challenger Around the World, in the Years 1872-1876, Under the Commands of Capt. Sir G. S, Nares and Capt. F. T, Thomson Professor Moseley, to enumerate his contributions to scientific literature, and to show the place which he filled in the intellectual world, would be a comparatively easy task. It is far more difficult to picture the man as he was known to his friends and colleagues, to describe his kindliness, his humour and good common sense; all those characteristics, in short which made him the best and most loyal of friends, the mos: genial and interesting of companions. Fortunately he has left, in the very pages to which this slight sketch serves as an introduction, a better portrait of himself than any biographer could hope to present. He would be a dull reader indeed who failed to appreciate the exceptional powers of observation, the absorbing love of nature, and the numerous evidences of tact, humour, and cheerful good temper under trying circumstances with which these pages abound. The Challenger voyage was an epoch in Moseley's life; it went a long way towards determining his career and shaping the final bent of his mind. So his narrative may well be taken as a faithful account of his aims and feelings, and of the Opinions which he formed then, and held in later life.
