"At 7.40 the padre conducted a short voluntary church parade service in an orchard behind the farm in which C Company hangs out just opposite the farm in which I am billeted. Allen, Priestley, Barker, Giffin, and I were there. The band was there for the first hymn it then had to go to Headquarters to play 'retreat' at 8 p.m. There were about twenty men...."

Priestley, Cavendish and Lavoisier were dissecting the impalpable air and making the gaseous form of substances as familiar and manageable as the solid. Hence true analytic chemistry. Astronomy, an older science, had derived new precision from the first observed transit of Venus, imperfect as were the data obtained and the calculations made.

"She's fairly well-known, of course; everybody'd recognize it." "Ah, don't distress yourself! The book's symbolical," Sullivan explained vaguely. "I was wondering now, would ye sound her?
