Waterhouse, Benjamin, 1754-1846, A.L.s. to Nathaniel Bowditch; Cambridge, 1 side (3 pages), 1833 October 19, 1833 October 19 Digital

Scope and Contents

Correspondence written to mathematician Bowditch, in which Waterhouse says he plans to send him an interleaved copy of his Essay on Junius and his letters, and asks that Bowditch add his comments on the blank pages. "I seek correction rather than eulogy, accuracy rather than practical flourish," Waterhouse explains. He also mentions he will seek the opinion of the New Hampshire judge John Pickering (1737-1805).
