The OCLC Research WorldCat Identities project is ending. The work provided valuable insight into how to mine bibliographic data for insight into the People and Organizations that create and serve as subjects library materials. The findings demonstrated the power of data mining over the world’s largest set of bibliographic metadata and highlighted the value of collaborative collective cataloging. The WorldCat Identities data has positively impacted OCLC’s work to build the WorldCat Entities application and the 150 million Person and Work descriptions accessible through it. This work will continue to build our entity ecosystem to support the future knowledge work of librarians.

The WorldCat Identities web application will be retired and shut down in the coming months and the data is no longer being updated. The most recent version of the data is from July of 2022. As OCLC continues to build out the WorldCat Entities ecosystem, please use it as a source for persistent Person identifiers.

Telling Wycombe that he has lost the opportunity for "high honour" with his abrupt return from Paris; writing that he must now rely on him to forward the enclosed papers (no longer with the letter), instead of presenting them in person; asking, "if the Neckers do not relish the matter", that Wycombe forward the papers to Abbé Morellet, with whom Lord Shelburne (Petty's father, William Petty) has arranged for their publication: "But would they care to send them to him? or would he care they should know of his being concerned in such a business?--These are questions which you only can decide"; welcoming him back to "poor Old England"; writing of Suzanne Necker: "You can tell Madame Necker, should any apology be necessary to a woman for making her a personage, why I thought of her in priority to her husband. I know from you, of her reading English, and my English--which is [m]ore than I know of him. Besides Ld. L. had the goodness to give me a letter [fo]r her, though I had no opportunity of delivering it."
