                                bones really have lost more 
animal than earthy matter,
containing as much as 76[?] per cent 
of the latter - while recent human 
bone contains not more than 65 per cent 
Under these circumstances Dr Johnsons explanation of the 
phenomena appears to me to 
break down.
And with regard to the second 
question raised, I do not think
the <s>paper<\s> subject, as treated by 
Dr Johnson, of sufficient importance 
to be dealt with in the Philosophical 
Transactions
