From DAVID LYLE1
MS., GUL Gen. 1035/143; unpubl.
London, 12 Nov. 1761
[He has missed seeing Smith in London and wishes to have a place at the Board of Works. When he gets one, he will present his ‘new mathematical instruments’ to the King. He asks Smith to write a covering letter to the 2nd Earl of Shelburne to accompany a gift of ‘Volume Compasses’. He comments on the elder Pitts’ resignation as Prime Minister, Oct. 1761, as that of ‘too great and too violent a man to be a servant to a young King of our sovereign’s disposition’.]
[1 ]? David Lyle, Glasgow M.A. 1755; possibly the man described in DNB as a stenographer and author of The Art of Shorthand Improved (1762).
