    The article consists of two letters, one from the author to Adam Clarke and Clarke's reply. The author having noted that an experiment similar to Clarke's had been carried out some years before, Clarke replies giving further details, and suggesting that his own experiment was more impressive. He concludes that the 'whole has the most direct tendency to show the inexhaustible power with which God has endued the seeds of vegetables, and especially those which are of most use to man' (650).
