    Dr. Lisa Smith,

    Hello, my name is Taylin Nelson, I am an international student studying at King’s College London in the 18th-Century Studies MA programme. I am currently working o nym dissertation, a part of which looks at the reception of rabies in the 18th-c. I was lead to the Sloane Letters Project webpage which discusses a letter from John Burnet to Hans Sloane concerning a tale about Peter the Great. Unfortunately, the link to cite this account is dead, and I cannot find any information through the British Library or online. I was wondering if you would have information on this particular source? I’m sure you’re very busy and appreciate your time and assistance.

    Much obliged,
    Taylin Nelson

    Hi, I’m a PhD researcher using some of Sloane’s letters. I just read through http://sloaneletters.com/letters/letter-4547/ and found it very useful, before seeing Lisa smith’s piece about it at http://sloaneletters.com/a-visit-to-seventeenth-century-jamaica/ . Am I right in thinking they talk about the same letter, dated 17th April 1688?

    The entry refers to the letter as being from Herbert to Sloane; the descriptive piece, the other way round. Could you clarify which way round it is? That Sloane is the author makes more sense, but I just want to check before I analyse the source in depth!
