Summary:

Discussed JH's proposed felspar paper [see HW's 1816-4-24] with W. H. Wollaston. Suggests using Wollaston's and [recently deceased Smithson] Tennant's unpublished method to test for alkalis and give Tennant credit for it. James Smithson first coined term 'silicate'.

RS:HS 18.39
Summary:

Sends copy of HW's paper on combinations of 'Plural Elements,' printed in Transactions of Cambridge Philosophical Society, based on the method of continued subtraction suggested by Augustus De Morgan. Shows solution for Bernoulli's fifth number.

Summary:

Thanks for comments on HW's paper and work on properties of Bernoulli's numbers. Claims HW's method of continued subtraction is convenient process for determining numerical coefficients. Found error, long perpetuated in literature, regarding Bernoulli's 13th number. Offers correct solution.

Summary:

Destroy all HW's letters claiming errors in Leonhard Euler's values for Bernoulli's numbers. Mr. Hensley of Trinity College found weakness in HW's continued subtraction method. Clarifies symbols HW used to represent P. S. Laplace's expressions of Bernoulli's numbers.

Summary:

Verified Leonhard Euler's values for Bernoulli's numbers up to B=25 by method previously outlined and to be stated fully in this letter. Mr. Hensley [of Trinity College] proposes to revise incorrect values given in Penny Cyclopaedia. Computing a Bernoulli number by P. S. Laplace's formula takes three days. HW's method of continued subtraction requires only 24 hours.
