II-21
Contemporary note on David Hume. A leaf measuring 21 x 20.5cm., about Hume's alledged readiness to correct and to revise criticisms by others of his philosophy. The author claims 'certain knowledge' that critics of Hume submitted their pieces to him not for the reasons given in the account of Hume's dispute with Rousseau but because they wanted to be sure that they had not misinterpreted Hume. A penciled note suggests that the author might possibly be Dr.Angus Macdonald(1834-1886), but the handwriting and content of the fragment place it towards the end of the 18th century, or,possibly,at the beginning of the 19th century.
II-22
Contemporary note on David Hume. A fragment on a single sheet measuring 22.7 x 18.3cm., alluding to Hume's illness and the letter published by William Mason in his 'Memoir of the life and writings of Gray.' As the fragment refers to Hume's illness and a writing published the year before his death, it must date from 1776.
