After the letter was passed on to Newton, the secretary received a stunning reply: "Sir, I desire that you will procure that I may be put out from being any longer a Fellow of the Royal Society. " 59 Isaac Newton Oldenburg and John Collins, who was still corresponding with Newton on mathematics, quickly put their heads together in hopes of averting disaster. " Newton was not completely satisfied, but when he wrote back two weeks later he dropped the matter of his resignation. " Needless to say, Oldenburg forwarded no more letters to him containing objections to the paper on light.
Instead of asking Newton to redraft his response, Oldenburg, who disliked the know-it-all Hooke, immediately presented the reply to the council of the Royal Society. Hooke was humiliated and suffered additional embarrassment when Oldenburg published the text in the November issue of the Philosophical Transactions, while Hooke's criticism of Newton's work never reached print. Still, Newton must have felt a lot like the Dutch boy who attempted to plug holes in the dike with his fingers; each time one was sealed another opened up.
Hooke claimed he had fashioned a refracting telescope eight years earlier that was only an inch long and could be worn on the chain of his pocket watch. According to its inventor, it performed better than any telescope 50 feet long. Only the onset of the plague had kept him from making a larger version of the instrument. Nor had he wanted the glass grinders to know his secret. At least some of those present must have been skeptical, for Hooke liked to brag 55 Isaac Newton and often claimed that the fear of theft was the reason for not making his inventions and discoveries known.
