Reading Experience:

Professor W. T. Brande to John Murray, 2 January 1826: 'Sir H. Davy [...] is extremely sore at Mr. Daniell's paper which appeared in late numbers of [of "Brande's Journal of Science," published by Mr. Murray]. He told me he had spoken to you on the subject. Pray pay no kind of attention to this exceedingly impertinent interference of that self-constituted autocrat of science, who, if he continues to intermeddle, may receive a lesson through the "Journal" that shall teach him better manners.'
