Did T Horton James read On Naval Timber?
Here is an article citing Matthew's Emigration fields and Matthew as the author of "On Naval Timber". It is reproduced in Tait's Edinburgh Magazine in 1839 (Here).
There is no evidence the author read On Naval Timber. But it is further evidence of the extent to which Matthew's book was cited in popular literature long before Darwin and Wallace plagiarised it.
Thomas Horton James was a merchant and traveller: See: https://www.austlit.edu.au/austlit/page/A137272
