Autograph Letter signed, to Nathaniel Ingersoll Bowditch
New Haven, 1842. 2pp. on recto and verso of the first leaf, with conjugate leaf addressed on verso. 1 vols. 4to. Soiled and stained, a few cellotape repairs, small piece torn away from conjugate address leaf. 2pp. on recto and verso of the first leaf, with conjugate leaf addressed on verso. 1 vols. 4to. Silliman (1779-1864), the pioneering American scientist and founder of THE AMERICAN JOURNAL OF SCIENCE AND THE ARTS, writes "I did not expect to trouble you to acknowledge my small pamphlet but I am gratified that it is approved by you." Silliman continues at length regarding the illness of "our much valued friend, Mrs. Jackson. ...In rising from the oblivion of a fever, perhaps it was not a very unnatural delusion that the friends whom she has ceased to see about her - were dead ..." The "Mrs. Jackson" referred to is probably the wife of James Jackson, M.D., co-founder, along with Bowditch, of Massachusetts General Hospital.
