|Named Person:||David Brewster; David Brewster|
|Document Type:||Book, Archival Material|
|All Authors / Contributors:||
Ada King Lovelace, Countess of; Charles Babbage
|Notes:||The year of writing is not given however it is likely that the year was 1844; October 22nd fell on a Tuesday in 1844 and the year seems appropriate to its placement within the collection and the contents of the letter.
The letter is simply addressed to "My dear Friend" but it seems very likely from the contents of the letter that she is writing to Charles Babbage.
David Brewster founded the Edinburgh Journal of Science in 1824 and with Charles Babbage helped to create the British Association for the Advancement of Science which first met in 1831. Brewster was a physicist, mathematician, astronomer and science writer.
