                                I hope M<sup>r<\sup> Linus’s friends will acquiesce in
y<sup>e<\sup> late tryall of y<sup>e<\sup> Exp<sup >t<\sup> in defait, for y<sup>e<\sup>
procurement of W<sup>ch<\sup> & for sending them no-
tice of y<sup>e<\sup> event, I return you my hearty
thanks, as I have reason. I perceive I 
went upon a wrong supposition in what I wrote 
concerning M<sup>r<\sup> Boyles exp<sup >t<\sup>. The papers in yo<sup>r<\sup>
hand I have no present need of: You may send 
them at yo<sup>r<\sup> best leisure. Sometime this sommer 
it’s possible I may make use of them, if I can 
but get some time to write y<sup>e<\sup> other discourses 
about y<sup>e<\sup> colours of y<sup>e<\sup> Prism w<sup >ch<\sup> I have long 
intended. S<sup>r<\sup> I am 
Yo<sup>r<\sup> humble & obliged 
Servant
Is. Newton
