Intelligent and timely' i eritlolsm upon tb lectur l dsiivared in Wilkas-Barra on ilia avantnv nf th. Ark n April, regarding tb "buoyancy of tb Dead Bee," In which you point out a triklng discrepancy between th atattmant ot a prsvt- ., on lecturer and myself, seems to call for a ' few words ot explanation. I spoke on tbe evening alluded to without noter, therefore cannot recall my preotaa words, but wbatl Intended to say, and what I'thluk I did aay was that, "the tpeoifto gravity or density of tb waters of tba .'Aiphellui Be' wao great (In 1,000 ounces thrarS(lS - ounce or Upwards of one-fourth of tb au-, tire weight ot mineral aalU) that It was ysry , dlUloult to awlm and Imposslbl tor a man to ' sink In It" I did nit try tb water myself (being quit III at tb tlm of my visit) but I - saw other floating tbout In the briny sea us corks, ana a nor driven In -turned powries oh bl ld as "soon a b got beyond bt depth. . Tb best autboritir and traveler will bear m out in this per sonal sxperlenoe. Speaking of tha buoyancy " or tne waters of tb Dead Hea, Joeephus aaya that wben tbe Roman general, Vespasian, "went to see it, he commanded that some who could not swim should bf v thslr band tied behind them and be thrown Into th deep, wben It ao happened tbat they all swam, aa If a wind bad forotd tbem upwards." Can- tain Lynob, of tbe U. B. Navy, says in bis "Hoientiuo exploration" "Tb water of tb tea ar very buoyant; It la difficult to keep one's feet beneath the turf see; a muscular man will float breast blgh without any exertion." Prof. J, L. Porter, tb learned author of th artlole "Dead Baa," in tb Encyclopedia Brilannica, says "tb tptolno gravity of the sea is so great tbat tb buman body will not sink in it" I might multiply oorroboratlv testimony almost indefinitely,, but I think tbl will suffice to ooDvIno those tbat beard m tbat I spoke not unadvisedly on tbe subject In juttio to tb gentisman wbos opinion bss bean quoted by you as In opposition to mine. I should say tbst tb buoyancy or the water of th "Deed Bee" I dlffsraot at different part ' of th es,nd at different Mason of tb j sr. ' If b tried tb water near tb month of tha Jordan,! where tha torrent In the rainy season of fresh water rush down tba Jordaa Valley In flood, sufficient to raise th sea twelve or fifteen feet abov Its mean Isvsl) hs would unquestionably have gone qulokly ' to the bottom nnleas be could swim, and have bad good reason to call the asssumed buoyancy of tb water "a nation." If , b bad tested tb water at tb point I did (soma ' four mile from tb month - of tho Jordan), -and in tb dry aaaon, when thtintenm nap oration, baa brought tb tea to its orafat v) densttv I think our experieno would have . i been th tarns. To subject I a most Inter- sting on and yon ar right In demanding tbat lecturer who presume to taaoh others should "be aoourete In tbelr ntteranoet and statements.
