Sir , 17 th August , 1817 . IT is very desirable that the names of the writers in the Theological Repository , edited by Dr . Priestley , a work which contains so much invaJuable matter , should be preserved . I was in expectation that a similar
suggestion from one of your Correspondents , some time ago , would have been attended to , as I have no doubt that amongst the readers of your publication a complete list might easily be made out . For this purpose I have
sent you an alphabetical list of the signatures , with the names of the different writers affixed , as far as I am able to discover them , which , with your permission , I beg may be inserted in the Monthly Repository . My authorities you will find annexed . Those

names marked with an asterisk , (*) I found written in a copy of the TheoK Repos . which I have had an opportunity of seeing ; how far they may be correct , it is impossible for me to say ,
but I am of opinion , they will be found so , this copy having originally belonged to an Unitarian minister , now deceased . The signatures used by Dr . Priestley are given by him in Vol . III . p . 478 , and VI . 491- Those which have no name affixed to them mav be
left out or preserved at your discretion , though I think it would be as well to preserve them , as the blanks may be filled up in course of time , and the list made useful for referring to . I need not say that I shall be glad to see any thing added towards rendering it more complete . T . R » S .
