To John Winthrop
ALS (letterbook draft): American Philosophical Society
London, Jan. 13. 1772
I have received by Mr. Marchant the 52s. you sent by him.8 I hope you received the Transactions for 1770. A new Volume is expected soon, which I shall forward by the first Opportunity. The enclos’d I have just receiv’d from Dr. Price, into whose Hands I put your Paper, which he has now return’d to me.9 Let me know if you would have me give it to the Society. With great Esteem I am, ever, my dear Friend, Yours most affectionately
8. Henry Marchant, who had arrived in England the previous August, had presumably brought payment for the Phil. Trans. for 1770. This was Winthrop’s usual method: above, XVII, 265; XVIII, 30.
9. For Winthrop’s paper on the transit of Venus, and the involved communication between him and Price via BF, see above, XVII, 264 n.
