The letters date from late 1768 to early 1771. In the letter of 16 December 1770 Price mentions a book he 'is sending to the Press' in which he is to 'mention [the] Society as having been founded under the direction of Mr Dodson'. He probably refers here to the first edition of his Observations on Reversionary Payments that was first published in 1771 and was a pioneering publication in actuarial science.
After this, Price recommended William Morgan to the appointment of Assistant Actuary in 1774, Morgan becoming principal Actuary from 1775. Morgan would benefit from Price's considerable mathematical advice in his early years in office but would soon make the job his own.
