Thus by the very firft page prejudiced against the book, may deem it a
performance of no value, and on that account may become inftrumen-
tal in preventing the spreading of those truths which are contained in it.
I should in particular fuffer in being represented as judging with fo little
regard of men whose abilities I must acknowledge ; and if I thought
myself hurt by the rash judgment of a French Reviewer, in the Jurnal
Encyclopedique for May 1766, p. 137, and in the Grzette Litteraire de
l'Europe for Jul. 1966, who, after quoting the English title, says, Cet
ouvrage eft ridiculo, et prouve, que l' Auteur ne connoit ni les ecrits de Mr.de
Buffon, ni ceux de Nir. de Maupertuis. was not this reflexion folely
caused by the title of the book which Mr. W. has printed under my
name? and might I not with great justice desire that this might be al-
tered? But, although I am little apprehensive of being turned into ridi-
cule, yet I wish, the impartial world may neither impute to me fuch
abusive and false reproaches gentlemen of an established character,
nor the defeats of the translation. Should Mr. Wynne or the book feiler
at any time thirk proper to give another edition, I would, if they desire
it, be very ready to supply them with corrections, improvements, and
later additions to the work,

If you, Gentlemen, would do ine the favour, to publish this decla.
ration to the literary world, you will very much oblige your moit obea.

HERMANN SAMUEL REIMARUS,
Hamburg, Nov. 18, 1766. Professor at Hambourgh.

We are sorry to learn, from a manuscript paper enti:led, A Let-
der to the Monthly Reviewers, concerning Locke and Leibnitz, &c. that Mr.
Rajpe, the learned and worthy Ecitor of the posthumous works of the
laft-mentioned philosopher, hath miliaken some paffages in our account
of that edition, in the Appendix to our thiry.third volume.- We have
neither leisure nor inclination to enter into any controversy concerning
the pre-eminence due to the Lo kian or the Leibnitz an philosophy; and
therefore we Mall only observe, that the paffage in our article (wherein
some late disrespectful treatment of Mr. Locke's memory was glanced at)
which seems molt especially to have displeased Mr. Rolpe, did not allude
to his publication, but to another work, the natural produce of our own
country. We have too much respect for the character of Mr. Rafae,
both as a PHILOSOPHER and as a man, to be capable of designed'y
giving him any just cause of offence. He wil, therefore, we hope, con-
lider this acknowledgment as a suflicient concesion, from person. equally
engaged with himself, in fupport of the common interells of the repub-
lic of letters,
