Dear Sir

I beg to inform you that your Spectroscope with three prisms which you kindly ordered some time since is quite ready.

It is one of the best I have ever made, as with care 2 or 3 lines may be seen in the Solar Spectrum between double D, and 1 or 2 between the D lines of a sodium flame.

Waiting your instructions,

Believe me Dear Sir Your Obedt Servt
John Browning
