Popularization, Lecturing, Measurement
Responds to news that 'one of the Professors who are engaged to make science popular' is lecturing on 'the philosophy of an empty bottle'. Notes that 'a good deal of philosophy is sometimes required in reference to a bottle which has been paid for as a quart, but which turns out to hold scarcely a pint'. Relishes the thought of cracking with the professor 'over his bottle'.
