Excerpt from Transactions of the Hertfordshire Natural History Society and Field Club, Vol. 4: October, 1885, to October, 1887

That which the bard apparently foresaw, some three centuries ago, the modern student has proved. In their patient search for truth a few earnest men, chie?y during the past hundred years, have thread by thread removed the veil that from time immemorial has hidden the law of the mdestructibility of matter from our eyes. Who decreed that law Not man.

Of the Laws of God in Nature, quite as striking a law as that just alluded to is the law Of the mdestructibility of force: perhaps, indeed, more striking because of the pre-eminently striking cha racter of force itself. For power, energy, or force, seems to belong, if possible, to a higher order of creation than matter - matter being limited in its area and havmg place assigned to it, while force is all-pervading; force ever filhng and ever traversing the inter stellar spaces as well as ever governing the matter which forms the moons, planets, and suns of the umverse. By force is meant that which causes motion, that which actuates matter: Whether the force be manifested by the muscle of an animal, the power of an engine, the stroke of the hghtniug; by the silent attraction of the magnet or the warmth Of the sun; by the quiet but irresistible chemical power which converts one form of matter into another; or by hght, to which alike the glorious rainbow and the modest Violet owe their lovely hues. Force, like matter, is indestructible, by any means known to us or of which we can conceive.
