PROF. NEWTON has sent you a long reply to my criticism of his Address to the British Association; and although it is exceedingly inconvenient to me, as I believe it is also to him, to continue the discussion at the present time, I must ask you for space, as soon as you can spare it, to point out as briefly as I can, how little progress my friend has yet made in his subject. He was good enough to show me his reply before he sent it to you, and I then told him I should have to meet him on every point in it. Nevertheless he sent it for publication, and as the subject appears to me to be one on which the public should not be misled, I am compelled to ask space for some comments upon it.
