150.Joshua Childrey to Wallisc.20/[30] March 1669/70

Transmission:

Manuscript missing.

Existence and date: mentioned in Wallis–Oldenburg 29.III/[8.IV].1670. Childrey clearly wrote to Wallis after 5/[15] March and probably not long before receiving Wallis's reply.

In this letter Childrey apparently apologised for not having sent his animadversions on Wallis's hypothesis of tides directly to Wallis rather than through the hands of Oldenburg. He also expressed his interest in seeing Wallis's response.
