1211. CHEMISTRY, Nomenclature.—[continued].

You have heard of the
new chemical nomenclature endeavored to
be introduced by Lavoisier, Fourcroy, &c.
Other chemists of this country, of equal note,
reject it, and prove in my opinion that it is
premature, insufficient and false. These latter
are joined by the British chemists; and
upon the whole, I think the new nomenclature
will be rejected, after doing more harm than
good. There are some good publications in
it, which must be translated into the ordinary
chemical language before they will be useful.—
To Dr. Currie. Washington ed. ii, 544.
(P. 1788)
