                                has never so far as I know been yet suspected to exist,
I flatter myself, that the conclusions to which I have 
been led, as tending to complete the theory & as useful 
to explain a number of curious phenomena, may not 
be altogether unworthy of the Society’s attention.
I should therefore take it as the greatest favor if you 
would be so kind as answer this as soon as may be 
convenient <s>to <\s> for you, in order that I may be informed 
whether I may venture to transmit a paper to the R.S.
& whether by the medium of yourself or the Proceedings.
Perhaps, indeed, this ought to have been addressed 
to <u>him<\u>; but If I have troubled <u>you<\u> with it by 
mistake, I hope ignorance will plead my excuse...
You would, also, oblige me greatly <s>if you answered <\s> by 
telling me whether, If I am to draw up a paper, my 
observations, experiments & demonstrations, ought to 
be arranged in <u>Propositions <\u> as in Book I of <u>Optics <\u>, 
or in the order of investigation as in <u>Bk II &III<\u>...
I would willingly, till I hear from you, conceal my 
name: But, both from the little attention usually 
(& properly) paid to anonymous letters, and also from
