The following are quotes:
- “I find it almost impossible to believe that Newcomen never knew of Papin’s steam engine cylinder, at least by hearsay. Papin published sever other papers (3,4,5) and maybe there was someone at Dartmouth, one of the gentry perhaps, who could read French, if not Latin, and gave Newcomen access to Papin’s work.”
