Your letter of the 25th of March was extremely agreeable to me, as you may well imagine, and I am very much obliged to you for it. I shall be very glad to hear that a new edition is called for and we shall have no difference about the terms of Publication. If a new edition of the theory is wanted I have a few alterations to make of no great consequence which I shall send to you. Let me hear from you soon.
I was misinformed with regard to the Abbé Morellet having translated my book.
My Philosophical transactions are now compleat. I am much obliged to you for the trouble you have had about it. I ever am
My Dear Sir your most affectionate humble Servant
[1 ]This letter is presumably to Thomas Cadell, Smith’s London publisher; see the forerunner, Letter 239, dated 19 June 1784, in which mention is made of Morellet’s translation of WN and Smith’s request for the Transactions of the Royal Society. The editions referred to are the 4th of WN, published in 1786, and the 6th of TMS, which was available by May 1790. This latter came to incorporate extensive additions and substantial revisions; see Letters 276 and 287, addressed to Cadell, dated 15 Mar. 1788 and 31 Mar. 1789.
