Description:
Croydon, undated. 2 pp. 7 x 4½ inches, in good condition. William Odling (1829–1921), chemist. Among his publications were A Course of Practical Chemistry (1854), A Manual of Chemistry, Descriptive and Theoretical (1861), and Outlines of Chemistry (1870). As the first medical officer of health for Lambeth he gained direct experience of cholera and other water-borne diseases. For drinking purposes, he concluded that well water, with possibilities of immediate pollution, was less desirable than river water, with its natural processes for purification. In chemistry, Odling’s lectures and writings played a considerable part in shaping fundamental chemical theory, and in several respects laid the foundations for the theory of valency, as defined by Edward Frankland and August Kekulé.

They both went up to Kings College Cambridge in 1733, and both were ordained. However, the connection is not entirely proven. ‘...I beg my Crimes may be imputed to their real Cause. Do not think that a sign of Disrespect, which ten to one is a Proof of nothing but my late rising. I have often been displeas’d with myself; but never with you. Tho’ I am almost angry at you now, for thinking me so. Dear Ashton, yours ever, Ogden.’

He was the heir presumptive to the throne of France from the death of his brother Nicolas Henri in 1611 until the birth of his elder brother's first son in 1638.

Should this find you in Japan I would ask you to obtain for me the bulbs of any lilies that you may be able to get and for which I would gladly defray the cost, in any manner you might direct. They carry well, and I am told that the kinds of lily in the gardens of Japan are both rare and beautiful. My own garden is a great solace to me and I should be proud to raise a new variety from Japan. All the particulars you favour me with are of great interest, and in the present crisis news from the strange land in which you now are is much sought after.
