William Huskisson : 'The Question Concerning the Depreciation of our Currency Stated and Examined'

Spencer Perceval to John Wilson Croker, 11 November 1810: 'I thank you for the sight of H[uskisson]'s pamphlet. I have run through it, I cannot say [italics]read[end italics] it, for it requires much more [italics]reading[end italics] than I have had time yet to give it. It is in many parts very able -- in all very specious; in many, however, I presume to think very fallacious, and particularly unfair in keeping out of sight so much as it does the circumstance of interrupted commercial intercourse with the Continent, which in my opinion is sufficient, together with the causes which he mentions, to account for almost all these symptoms and phenomena which he ascribes solely to the supposed excess in our paper circulation [comments further].'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: Spencer Perceval
