                                Sir,
According to your request, I sent last Saturday your paper to Mr
Mills, who promised to take care of it: so that I hope you will receive it safe 
& speedily. It was made up into a parcel direct to you, to the care of Mr Rolleston 
to Bridge Dr. The plan you propose for abridging the paper appears to me 
very proper. As it is now suspectd this the analogy which Mr I.N. imagined 
between the quantities of the... colorific rays, the musical intervals 
is to the ..... tho well founded, it might be of success to say 
that you found your spectra to be divided in the same proportions 
of the colorific rays as the spectrum of the common prism, without 
entering into the details of your measurements. In case the Society shod 
think it right to print your abridgement, they will have no objection to 
any number of figures which may be required. One vol. of the Phil Tr.
comes out every year, in <u>two<\u> Parts, the first of which is usually publishd 
the latter end of May, & the second in November. It is not possible to tell
