Mr. Stone, however, took a number of the types to the window for me & afterwards to his office, where I made comparisons & also corrected my sketches made in 1893 & added

crenated = scalloped Acrodelphis see Previous projects TC has requested use of [[insertion]] et for insertions & [[circled]] has also been previously used. Platamsta searched on google & found mentions to do w. fresh water dolphins
