Notes
The text read is a fairly lengthy letter in French from a French engineer, Frederic Andre, thanking Thomas Stevenson for a copy of his ""A Treatise of Marine Works"", published in 1874, which he praises and offers to translate into French. RLS has read and translated the letter and encloses a copy of this translation in Letter 469. I haven’t found anything corresponding exactly to the title of the publication in question as given in Letter 469. An article on “The Design and Construction of Harbours” by a Thomas Stevenson was published in Edinburgh in 1874, reprinted and enlarged from the article “Harbours” in the eighth edition of the Encyclopedia Britannica
