Abstract

"Will you give me what in your judgment you consider the nearest approach to, a "Selfacting-Engine'' -- one generating its own motive power, and a surplus, for other purposes, say as, systems of animated nature do, in the [---]ctions of vitality. ## In this, I can promise [--] [---], there is, something worth noticing. Marginalia by TAE: "The Sun & plants is the only apparently self acting devices I know of"
