Read of JH's intention to prepare general catalogue of nebulae. Encloses list of unpublished nebulae found at Harvard over past 15 years. Finds similarity in form but difference in theory between JH's equations for curve of object glasses ['On Aberrations of Compound Lenses and Object Glasses' (1821)] and those of K. A. Steinheil and C. F. Gauss. Asks about Josef Fraunhofer's theory.

Summary:

Unpublished Harvard list contains nine nebulae published in [G. F. J. A.] Auwers's catalogue of novae, because those were first discovered at Harvard. Thanks JH for pointing out two others already published, which GB will exclude from list. Admits possibility of 'illusions' in some. Asks JH to compare results in C. F. Gauss's article on achromatic object glass. Sent copy of T. H. Safford's article on companion of Sirius.
