Lord Wellesley : 'Letter [on the character of Pitt, addressed to J. W. Croker]'

Lord Mahon to John Murray, 11 December 1836: 'I am much obliged to you for the early copy of the [Quarterly] Review which I am reading with great pleasure. The article on myself was very gratifying to me. Its approbation of the work is joined to so much knowledge of the subject as to make the former truly valuable. Pray, when you see Mr. Lockhart, tell him how highly I appreciate it. 'Lord Wellesley's letter is quite beautiful -- no less noble in sentiment than nervous in language [...] 'The third article on Napier makes me think the following no bad plan [goes on to suggest collection of all Quarterly Review article on this subject in a 'a pocket volume, for the use of the army']'.

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Lord Mahon      Print: Serial / periodical, 'early copy'
