Excerpt from The Entomologist's Record and Journal of Variation, Vol. 23: January to December, 1911 We have lived, and critics tell us we have lived well. That opinion is for our subscribers to acknowledge. The year has been for us an eventful and anxious one. It has been our earnest desire that the Magazine should continue on the same lines as during the last twenty-two years, when under the talented and beloved care of the late Mr. J. W. Tutt. We have ever kept before us the lines of Mrs. Gaskell: "Dying he shall never die, To the dust his dust we give.In our hearts his heart shall live." May his spirit ever live in the magazine and may it continue to fill the place it filled of yore. Everyone and each one of the editorial staff have been most loyal for the welfare of the paper, while many other gentlemen have given their aid ungrudgingly. The list of contributors has increased, the number of plates is quite normal, and from communications we note that the matter has been most acceptable to our readers for its varied and interesting character. The great feature of the volume has been the special "Tutt" number in May, probably a unique issue in the annals of entomological literature. For its success we are particularly indebted to those gentlemen outside our staff, who contributed of their best, the kindly notices of him we have lost. In the controversy of the year, when an aggressive attempt was made to pi event for ever the necessary extension of the British Museum (Natural History) our efforts were on the side we knew our late Editor would have forcefully taken. To the success of the opposition to this nefarious project, the splendid work of the Rev. G. Wheeler, both in the magazine and in other ways, in no small degree contributed. In fact, during the whole year Mr. Wheeler has devoted himself in season and out of season unsparingly to the interests of our success. In wishing our readers the Compliments of the Season may we urge them one and all to reciprocate by sending us notes of their collecting during the coming season.
