Excerpt from The Life of John Locke, 1830, Vol. 1 of 2: With Extracts From His Correspondence, Journals, and Common-Place Books
After the death of Locke, his papers, cor respondence, and manuscripts, came into the possession of Sir Peter King, his near relation and sole executor. They consist of the origi nals of many of his printed works, and of some which were never published; of his very ex tensive correspondence with his friends, both in England and abroad; of a journal which he kept during his travels in France and Holland; of his common-place books; and of many mis cellaneous papers; all of which have been pre served in the same scrutoir in which they had been deposited by their author, and which was probably removed to this place in 1710.
