Feels that Mackenzie should not have mentioned Harry and St. Frond on the same sheet of paper. Harry is a “very accomplished philosopher, not merely a crystallographer and mineralogist, but a deep mathematician and a man who wrote an excellent system of natural philosophy at six months’ notice, by the command of the late emperor.” St. Fond is “even less of a philosopher than our own illustrious Jameson.” Describes St. Fond’s visit to London and Glasgow.
