Huygens Discourse on the Cause of Gravity, 1690. Translation from Pannekoek (1961). Quoted from Pannekoek (1961). The correspondence between Huygens and Leibniz during this period was dominated by discussions of Newton's work, which shows that they both recognized its significance whether or not they agreed with its central tenets. From a letter to Richard Bentley in 1693, quoted from Turnbull (1961), Volume III. Newton's correspondence with Bentley, later to become Bishop of Worcester, is the primary source for information concerning Newton's views on the physical problem of the structure and creation of the Universe (see for example, Kerszberg (1986)).
