Scope and content

Royal Observatory Greenwich - GA and Richarda Airy 'propose to offer you our company on Dec. 12'. GA gives his corrections to WW's Inductive Sciences [History of the Inductive Sciences from the Earliest to the Present Time, 3rd edn., 1857] and apologises for the 'frightful' amount of references he gave on the progress of modern astronomy - 'I could not well give you fewer' [see GA to WW, 11 Oct. 1856].
