William Wordsworth to Daniel Stuart, 'Sunday Night, June 4th [1809]': 'Nothing but vexation seems to attend me in this affair of the Pamphlet [The Convention of Cintra]. Mr De Quincey according to my request sent me down ten stitched Pamphlets ... and it was not till today that I discovered that in two copies of those stitched the page which was cancelled remains as it first stood, the corrected leaf not having been substituted.'
