    Where can I read "Essay on the Figure of the Earth"?

    Apparently Lord Kelvin wrote a supposedly very original essay at the age of 15 (and won a gold medal for it from some university) titled "Essay on the Figure of the Earth". However, I can't seem to find it anywhere. How do I go about finding it? (even tried my university's electronic database for publications)
