"All the books written by Hutton were of a professional and practical character, and are invariably clear and accurate. "Mathematical and Philosophical Dictionary," 1795, was probably the most valuable of his works. Just before his death he drew up a paper, in reply to a series of scientific questions addressed to him by the London Bridge committee, with regard to the proper curve which should be adopted for the arches of the new design."
