Excerpt from Memoir on the Comparative Grammar of Egyptian, Coptic Ude This introduction to the Comparative Grammar of the Egyptian language is intended to throw light on the early history of that people, and consists of a memoir which was read before the Anthropological Institute of London on May 20th, 1873. To this various additions have been made in extension of the evidence. Besides the relations of the Egyptian race with the Caucasus, it also embraces some account of the great Agav race in Africa, Caucasia, and America. The facts here brought forward throw a new light on the ancient ethlogy of Caucasia, and also on what has been termed Caucasian grammar. The ancient connection in prehistoric times between the old world and tho new is referred to; a subject which was more extensively dealt with in a memoir I read on America before the British Association at Bradford in September of this year.
