TYNDALL, John (1820-1893). Physicist and mountaineer.
Letter Signed to H.Y. Thompson, 1 page 8vo with blank leaf, Royal Institution, 16 February, no year. Referring to an unspecified passage he had recently quoted in correspondence having 'an obvious bearing on present events.'

'The government has at length been roused to action, by the indignation and wrath of the country; and this will therefore, in all probability, be my last intrusion on your space. ...'

Tyndall's correspondent is perhaps Henry Yates Thompson (1838-1928, collector of illuminated manuscripts and newspaper proprietor), and may refer to an article in the Pall Mall Gazette.
