DescriptionDiscusses Dr [John Farquhar] Fulton's suggestion to obtain rotograph reproductions of all Halley letters not in print - and informs him that all 'proper' letters are already done. Informs him that there are however 30 or 40 entries in the book labelled 'Halley's Papers' that are unprinted, and suggests that a list of them is made, so that Mr MacPike can choose the ones that interest him and rotograph them.
