Page 57 - I am happy to have it in my power to Say that my worthy friend Cap! Lewis is recovering fast, he walked a little to day for the first time, I have discontinued the tent in the hole the ball came out...
Page xiii - Association are, by periodical and migratory meetings, to promote intercourse between those who are cultivating science In different parts of America, to give a stronger and more general impulse and more systematic direction to scientific research, and to procure for the labors of scientific men increased facilities and a wider usefulness.
Page 163 - ... let no man, upon a weak conceit of sobriety or an ill-applied moderation, think or maintain that a man can search too far or be too well studied in the book of God's word or in the book of God's works ; divinity or philosophy ; but rather let men endeavour an endless progress or proficience in both ; only let men beware that they apply both to charity, and not to swelling ; to use, and not to ostentation ; and again, that they do not unwisely mingle or confound these learnings together.
Page 11 - I have had opportunity to judge, I infer that heavy velvet carpets answer this purpose best. Two thicknesses of ingrain carpeting .answer very well. A drugget spread upon an ingrain carpet yields a good supply of the fluid . The effect of the increased thickness is obviously to improve the insulation of the carpet.

Page 164 - ... not in the collection, for it may have been received since the last appendix was printed. Supplements soon become intolerable. The whole catalogue must then be rearranged and reprinted. The expense of this process may be borne so long as the library is small, but it soon becomes burdensome, and ere long insupportable even to national establishments. There is but one course left — not to print at all. To this no scholar consents except from necessity. But to this alternative, grievous as it...
Page 173 - Thus we should have all our catalogues formed substantially upon one plan. Now, even if the plan adopted were that of the worst of our catalogues, if all were on the same plan, this uniformity would render catalogues, thus made, far more useful than the present chaos of irregularities.
