Letter from Charles S. Peirce to Arthur Searle
(Richmond, 25.06.1876)

Spanish translation & annotations



1876 June 25

Dear Sir

Yours of the 6th is at hand.

As to the second title for the book, some thing depends upon the preface which I understand from you it is proposed to prefix so as to satisfy Winlock’s friend. If that is done & I should approve of it (except that I protest against the preparation of the preface being taken out of my hands as if I was not as warm a friend of Winlock as any one) then a very simple title without his name would have come advantages, though I should like too to put his name on the title page if the felicitous manner of doing so





should occur to me.

I will add a few names of Photometric Astronomers to the list for distribution & attend to the distribution so far as I can, as you seem to desire.

The two figures of the photometer & the photometric obs’y should appear at the end of the photometric researches. The best way would be, I suppose, to send out some good impressions on transfer paper, so that they could be transferred & printed in Leipzig.

I meant to make no complaint of you to Mr. Hein although he in a note to me uses of phrase which seems to imply that he so understood



Yours truly & respectfully,

C. S. Peirce





Arthur Searle Esq.

Asst. in charge

Harvard College Obs'y

The text of the book is I suppose now all printed. There follows the Comparative Catalogue, which will progress rapidly.
