Abstract

Woodward to H. (Rawl. 12. 99). Some subscribers to Leland vol. i. Is wholly at a loss as to Mr. Parry's deportment. 'I hope you will a litle moderate your Concern about y e Royal Society: and not let y t which makes others only laugh, make a Gentleman of your good Sense uneasy. That whole affair has been for a long Time, during y e present Management, only a Subject of Jest among People of Understanding. At y t Distance you may make some Judgment of y e Performances here by Perusal of y e late Philosoph. Transactions. Those, who are y e most capable of serveing y e Design of y e Society, stand off, & will not communicate or join where there are such doings. There were some Intentions of late to retrieve y e Society; but all were prevented by a Mystery of Iniquity that reigns there, & that I must not unfold now."
