3. LbC has a paragraph at this point which is not in RC: “I beg you would present Miss Adams with the little book which accompanies this letter. It was written by Dr. Gregory, one of my masters, a worthy and eminent physician in { 76 } the city of Edinburgh.” The volume in question was John Gregory, A Father's Legacy to His Daughters, first published in 1774 and frequently reprinted (DNB).
