Excerpt from The New-England Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. 42: Published Quarterly, by the New-England Historic Genealogical Society, for the Year 1888

The astronomer with his telescope begins at the going down of the sun and examines, in zones, with the utmost care and vigilance, the starry vault, and continues till the circling hours bring the sun to the eastern horizon, when star and comet fade from his view. It requires several nights to complete a thorough survey of the heat ens; and often these nights do not follow in succession, being interrupted by the full moon, by cloud and auroras, and by various other meteorological phenomena. He is frequently vexed by passing clouds, ?eeting through the midnight sky, and strong and chilly breezes of the night. His labors are continued through out the year; and his unwearied exertions do not slacken during the long wintry nights, when the frozen particles of snow and ice, driven before the northern blast, cause the stars to sparkle with unusual lustre, and his breath to congeal on the eyepiece of his telescope. It frequently happens that his labors are not crowned with a discovery until after several years search.

It was with great satisfaction that Mr. Tuttle was able to eu nounce to the scientific world, so early in his astronomical career, the discovery of a telescopic comet. It was afterwards learned that the comet had been seen two days earlier at Rome by Professor Secchi, but this discovery of course was unknown in this country.
