A passage beginning on folio 23v, and dated “August 29 ,” shows that Starkey’s experimental program operated on two levels. He was deeply concerned with the cost of the reagents and the labor involved in producing his sophic mercury: he therefore strove to maximize efficiency of production in this area. At the same time, he thought that the sophic mercury was capable of dissolving metals and minerals into their first principles – namely sulfur and mercury. The sophic mercury was therefore a powerful analytical tool for arriving at experimental knowledge of metallic substances.
