AN answer to Mr. Proctor (vol. xiii. p. 186) is unnecessary to those who know all that has been written on the possibility of photographing the spectrum of the corona, but I take the liberty to give a few quotations out of the literature on the subject for the benefit of those who take an interest in the discussion, yet had no opportunity of following it in detail. Want of space prevents me from quoting all the letters in full, but I believe that I have not left out anything which might alter the sense of the quotations. The passages which seem to me to be important to the point at issue are printed in italics.
