To ANDREW MILLAR
MS., RSE vi. 34; HL i. 521, n. 1 (extract passed on to Hume by Millar)
Paris, Oct. 1766
Tho I am very happy here, I long passionately to rejoin my old friends, and if I had once got fairly to your side of the water, I think I should never cross it again. Recommend the same sober way of thinking to Hume. He is light–headed, tell him, when he talks of coming to spend the remainder of his days here, or in France.1 Remember me to him most affectionately.
[1 ]See Letter 87 from Hume, dated 5 Sept. 1765, and Smith’s reply, ? Sept. 1765, Letter 88, for another discussion of Hume’s wish to settle in Paris.
