Dr Marcet wants to republish his abstract in the "Archives des Sciences Naturelles" together with some plates which did not appear in the paper as published by the Royal Society. As this has been done several times before I suppose there can be no objection. I thought I mentioned the matter to you in a letter I wrote before Christmas, but I may have forgotten it. I have attended to all the other matters you wrote about.

A Happy New Year to you'.
