Scope and content

The Manor House, Hoole, Preston - Thanks WW for his helpful note. RB read WW's History of the Inductive Sciences a few years ago but does not remember him mentioning [Jeremiah] Horrocks. RB names some of the well known patrons subscribing to the Horrocks Memorial Fund, and would like WW to agree to add his name. If RB can find more than a hundred pounds he would like to purchase a field and call it Horrocks Field.
