Scope and content

Trinity College Cambridge - GA agrees with WW that his article on eye pieces should be printed immediately. If WW can arrange this, could he pass on the address of the printers and engraver. He has received the latest number of the Philosophical Journal which contains two letters by James Ivory about GA: 'I wish the man would not torment me by writing letters to me; I am amused by his idea that I have fallen into error from deference to high authorities; I never expected this accusation'.
