Excerpt from A Course of Mathematics, Vol. 3: Composed for the Use of the Royal Military Academy

I might take to my assistance the aid of any other person I might think proper. With this kind indulgence being en couraged to exert my best endeavours, I immediately ah nounced my wish to request the assistance of Dr. Gregory of the Royal Military Academy, than whom, both for his ex tensive scientific knowledge, and his long experience, I know of no person more fit to be associated in the due performance of such a task. Accordingly, this volume is to be considered as the joint composition of that gentleman and myself, hav ing each of us taken and prepared, in nearly equal portions, separate chapters and branches of the work, being such as, in the compass of this volume, with the advice and assistance of the Lieut. Governor, were deemed among the most useful additional subj ects for the purposes of the education esta blished in the Academy.
