Excerpt from Experimental Researches Concerning the Philosophy of Permanent Colours, Vol. 1: And the Best Means of Producing Them

The arts of dyeing and calico-printing, having attracted my particular attention so early as the year 1769, I published a volume in 1794, under the title of Experimental Researches concerning the Philosophy of Permanent Colours, c., intending that it should have been followed by a second, as soon as my other avocations would allow me to prepare it for the press. But my progress in that work was unexpectedly retarded, until the year 1799, when a bill, which had passed the House of Commons for granting me a more adequate remuneration for some of my former discoveries, having been lost in the House of Lords, (from causes mentioned in the second volume of this work, Part n.Chap. 2,)it became my duty to withdraw my attention from the intended publication, (at least for some time,) and employ it upon matters which seemed more likely to compensate the severe disappointment I had thus suffered.

Excerpt from Experimental Researches Concerning the Philosophy of Permanent Colours, Vol. 1: And the Best Means of Producing Them I have, in the course of this work, commonly adopted the language, and, with a few exceptions, the principles or ex planations of modern chemistry, not as being wholly unobjectionable, but as acconnrnc best with known facts, and being most likely to become parts of a more perfect system, when future discoveries shall have laid a sufficient foundation for the construction of one. I have not, however, been convinced of the expediency of adopting some of the Opinions recently promulgated by Sir Humphrey Davy; though I hope and believe, that I am properly disposed to admire his extraordinary talents, and acknowledge the important additions made by him to chemical science. This is not the place to discuss, and, therefore, it would be improper to dispute any of his facts; but I hope it may not be deemed improper for me to mention a few of the objections to which some of his conclusions seem liable.
