which appears to have given general offence . He takes for granted that Mr . Locke will read the work , as many copies had been sent to England . Now I have mentioned Locke ' s correspondence , give me leave to add , that I shall be much obliged to any of your readers for information respecting any letters to or from Locke which are not to be found in his works , the magazines , or public libraries . They would thus very much assist me to execute a favourite project , of which I laay , perhaps , soon offer you some farther account . J . T . RUTT .
