New Haven Novr 16, 1843
My dear sir,
Lecture hours impending, I write a brief note merely to thank you for your kind letter of the 13th and to say that your analysis of wines &c will be inserted if put to us soon, and when your reclamation is made before the Association at Washington we shall certainly reprint it or a condensed abstract, if it should be very long; the entire paper in all probability. We have received Dr Deane’s paper and he concludes it by a distinct recognition of your claims.
My son will write about the minerals & my daughter joins me in kindest regards to Mrs H & your children.
In great haste,
as ever very truly,
Prof Ed. Hitchcock
Benjamin Silliman writes to Edward Hitchcock saying that Hitchcock's analysis of wines will be printed soon in Silliman's American Journal of Science, if sent to him soon, and he remarks that James Deane has submitted a paper recognizing Hitchcock's claims.
