J. H. Jesse : (apparently) Selwyn and His Contemporaries

John Wilson Croker to J. H. Jesse, 5 December 1843: 'I am much obliged by your kind attention in sending me your Selwyn volumes: but to be candid with you, I can by no means approve of the publication of letters of so peculiarly a private, and in many instances, scandalous, character. I cannot, I honestly confess, understand what authority can exist for such a ripping up of private life. I am sorry also to observe some few considerable, and many small errors, in the notes. Some of them are probably typist errors, but some are not.'

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: John Wilson Croker      Print: Book
