LOCKE'S RESIDENCE AT OTES, NEAR HARLOW.

Mr. Locke resided, for the benefit of its salubrious air, during the last fourteen years of his life, almost entirely at Otes Manor House, then the seat of Sir Francis Masham, whose lady, Damaris, was daughter of Dr. Cudworth, author of the Intellectual System. Here he died in October, 1704, and was buried on the south of the Churchyard of High Laver, under a black marble grave-stone, which has lately been repaired at the expenceof the Rev. P. Budworth. His " Essay on the Human Understanding," his work on" Education,1' and his "Reasonableness of Christianity," were published during his residence here; and his published Letters to his friends were, during a period of many years,, dated from this interesting house.

To the Editor of the Monthly Magazine.
SIR,

AS I treat myself with a journey to
London once a year, and visit most

ticularly those of a musical character,

observations of some other of your cor-
respondents upon the same subjects.

As I run my eye down the steamy columns of this pleasant companion before the fire, I see invitations to the play, the opera, the Egyptian tombs, the exhibitions, and the English opera. How is it that we have this overflow at Drury-Lane on singing nights, and this dearth of company on A others?
