Babbage felt that Richard Sheepshanks, Secretary of the Royal Astronomical Society, was partially responsible for difficulty in obtaining government finding for his Difference Machine. After Sheepshanks’s death, his sister Anne (1789-1876) reprinted or reissued a number of his tracts, of which six are placed in this volume. Among them are "A reply to Mr. Babbage’s letter to The Times" and "On the planet Neptune and the Royal Astronomical Society’s medal" [Origins of Cyberspace 64].
