Herschel11498
From:  Sir John Herschel
To:  Francis Lunn
Date:  [11 November 1824]
Classmark:  RS:HS 11.411 & 20.189
Summary:  

Charles Babbage communicated [Edward] Smedley's note requesting JH to write an article on 'Heat' and an Introduction to Physical Science. Appears to be some misunderstanding as JH does not wish to write on Heat, no interest in the subject, but is prepared to write on Physical Optics. When will the latter article be required?

From:  Sir John Herschel
To:  Thomas Young
Date:  [1824-11-21 to 1825]
Classmark:  RS:HS 18.330 (C: 20.176)
Summary:  

Thanks TY for books and for taking charge of [G. A. A.] Plana's plates. JH mentioned Eilhard Mitscherlich only when no other proposals came forth. Matter was left hanging. Assures TY that JH was not offended [see TY's 1824-11-21, i.e., #1075]. Regrets 'dilapidated state of scientific matters' in R.S.L.

Herschel8061
From:  Thomas Young
To:  Sir John Herschel
Date:  [1824-11-21 to 1825]
Classmark:  RS:HS 18.328
Summary:  

As R.S.L. vice president, JH should reconsider his report favoring Eilhard Mitscherlich over W. H. Wollaston. This may be last opportunity to pay Wollaston a 'just compliment.' Agrees with JH that much in R.S.L. 'nicknamed science [is] sleight of hand,' and that 'great injustice is done to men of science.' But TY expects a short life and tries not to be concerned about approval of others.

Lambert.
