letters to various American scholars,
in which he explained the plan oftlie
Lnglish work, and suggested the for
mation of an American committee ol
twelve or eighteen, In which the
work of the Lnglish revisors could
lie submitted for erilleisius nnd sug

American committee were made in
the summer of 17'J. These arrange
ments weio concluded by Dr. Si half,
who visited Hnghiiid that summer for
that purpose. On Ids return in the
autumn Ihe commillee began work.
