Letters by Robert Lowth

For my study of the language of Robert Lowth, I am looking for letters and personal documents either by Lowth himself or by other people who belonged to his social circle. Please reply to Ingrid Tieken-Boon van Ostade. Cf. Tieken-Boon van Ostade, Ingrid (2000), 'Robert Dodsley and the genesis of Lowth’s Short Introduction to English Grammar'. Historiographia linguistica 27, 21–36. See also Ingrid Tieken-Boon van Ostade and Randy Bax, Of Dodsley’s projects and linguistic influence: The language of Johnson and Lowth.
