Thomas Dunham Whitaker : Galt's Life of Cardinal Wolsey

'Sir, I have heard with great regret that you are the author of that gross personal libel which appeared in the Quarterly Review, in the form of criticism on my Life of Cardinal Wolsey. I say with regret because it has been my settled determination from the moment I read the article to make the author sensible that in accusing me of being activated by the most obnoxious principles, he had laid himself open to be suspected of obeying them himself.'
