Additional Comments:

Taken from letter from JBW to Thomas Carlyle dated early November 1822 (by Editor). Page 193 in this edition. This is the second volume of O'Meara's work - see RED ref 16551 for her reference to reading the first. See also Carlyle's letter 28th October 1822 in which he refers to his intention to getting her the second volume.
