in consequence of the missive, Scientists in JA, penned by Linden
] As far as I can remember, Count Rumford (of fireplace fame) is the only scientist whom Jane Austen mentions. Can anyone think of any others?
Fireplace? I thought Rumford was a bakingpowder!
Yes, I remember wery well that we use to have it at home.
I wonder if that was produced in England too?
