"The annexed is an attempt of the late learned Bishop Wilkins towards a real character, and philosophical language; but he expresses himself sensible, that this contrivance is not brought to that degree of perfection to which it might have been upon further consideration and practice. For the information of my curious reader, I refer him to [John Wilkins, D.D, Essay Towards a Real Character and Philosophical Language, p.421, Folio, London, 1668.]"
