Notes a discussion in Parliament on the 'Principle of Selection'. Observes that this 'was not based on Mr. Darwin's book [Darwin 1871a], which alleges that we are descended from something like the Larvae of Marine Ascidians (we Aint, with an emphatic Capital)', but related to the selection of 'officers for regimental promotion' (133).
