    Discusses the possibility of using electricity to control clocks 'on every floor, in every man's house'. Suggests establishing a central electrical clock in the Horse Guards which would 'regulate all the Electrical Clocks in the Metropolis', and believes that this system would make for 'greater degree of regularity [...] in our daily engagements', including 'getting up of a morning' and railway travel.
