    This is good for having a glimpse into the processes used by a 1770-1800 chemist. There are fun hypotheses like the upper atmosphere being of entirely Hydrogen, and the origin of the word 'alkali'. Chemists know today what he writes he can't figure out, like the ratio of Carbons to Hydrogens in fatty acids. Take everything with a grain of salt. Lavoisier notes his limitations, but keep in mind his caloric hypothesis is disproven.
