TitleEdward Gillett
DescriptionALS written at some length on the plant/grass known as white leed, and the etymology of 'lid-grass', mentioning book by Cornelius Kilian. Comments in passing that 40 inches was recommended at the Aberdeen Mudfog as measurement of a metre, should decimalization take place. Has written to the Athenaeum with recommendations that a mile should contain 100 chains, and so a square mile would equal 1,000 acres instead of 640. Mentions frogs and natterjacks & weather conditions.
