Abstract

Aug. 19. Woodward to H. (Rawl. 12. 96). Dr. Harris had been appointed Sec. R.S., and was to publish Phil. Trans. , but Dr. Sloane by his agents has drawn in the President to defeat all those measures, and to play such a game as has made it necessary that the public should be informed of their proceedings, which will be done by a Fellow of the Society. Orders 2 sets of Leland, and will dispose of 10 or 12. Has recommended to Barnes as patron for his Homer Ld. Pembroke, who is a friend to letters.
