HAVING done so much work on the Terebrant Hymenoptera of St. Vincent and Grenada, it was with consider-able pleasure that I received, early in June 1807, a letter from Mr. George Murray, informing me that it was the desire of the West Indies Natural History Exploration Committee to transmit to me, to be worked up, the Aculeate Hymenoptera collected by Herbert H. Smith in these islands; that in a few days he expected to leave on an exploring expedition to the South Seas to be gone all summer, and if I could do the work to send my reply to Sir George Hampson, of the British Museum, who would see that the material was promptly forwarded.
