Did Granville Sharp make any comment regarding John Mill's copy of the New Testament? Did he make use of it? Any resources on how John Mill's copy was taken by the 18th Century Orthodox Greek scholars.

I assume that theGreek text that he used was the TR one... Also interesting, as that some have claimed that his rule breaks down in some situations, butDaniel Wallace stated that it also is true when:
In native Greek constructions (i.e., not translation Greek), when a single article modifies two substantives connected by kai (thus, article-substantive- kai-substantive), when both substantives are (1) singular (both grammatically and semantically), (2) personal, (3) and common nouns (not proper names or ordinals), they have the same referent. ^[2]^
