My dear Henry

I send you the last part of our Polytechnic Report which has been sent to me to correct. I send it because it gives a slight account of an application of your invention, which you may not have heard of – I have seen the instrument at work & I am sure it would please you to observe its extreme delicacy in noting the changes of a summers day.<1>

I wish you would attend our next annual meeting.

Do not me at 7 ˝ on Saturday, & send me back the report as soon as you can.

Yrs Aff
