From THOMAS CADELL
MS., GUL Gen. 1035/164; Scott 286.
London, 12 Dec. 1782
I was favoured with yours of the 7th1 and communicated its contents to our Friend Strahan who desires his best Compliments. I am happy to hear you are preparing for a new Edition of the Wealth of Nations—the delay will I am afraid prevent our publishing this new Edition this Winter—We will however set about it as soon as we receive the Copy, and if we cannot get [it] in time to publish before the Town is empty we will postpone it to the meeting of Parliament in the ensuing Winter. I heartily approve of selling the Additions separate, but as they will be very valuable we must, if possible, prevent them being sold but to those who purchased the Book. I have nothing further to add but that I remain with great respect and regard, Dear Sir,
Your obliged and affectionate Humble Servant
Will you be so obliging to let your Servant deliver the Inclosed to Dr Stedman.2
[1 ]Letter 222 addressed to Cadell, dated 7 Dec. 1782.
[2 ]Possibly Dr. John Stedman, physician and translator; author of Physiological Essays (1769); Laelius and Hortensia; or, Thoughts on the Nature and Objects of Taste and Genius (1782); Moral Fables (1784).
