Scope and content

Would be much obliged if he would read the introduction and let him know to what extent he agrees with his estimate of Locke.' Remarks that the task of putting together the 'Notes' was quite pleasant. Refers to the fact that he has not yet been able to find the origin of the definition of motion, which Locke attributes to the Cartesians, 'or to discover where and by whom the "West[ ] tongue" was spoken.
