Will Mr. Mazzei be so good as to write to some friend in Italy to inform him whose translations into Italian of the above authors, are the best: and also to denote by the addition of the figures 1. 2. 3. &c. which are of the 1st. degree of merit, which are only 2d. rates, 3d. ra[tes] and which are the best of the small editions of them, for his very humble servt.,
