ricardo to trower1
Upper Brook Street 8th. Novr. 1813
After reading the Pamphlet2 which you were so kind as to send me, I fully intended calling on you, to thank you for the pleasure and information which I had received from it,—but I am so circumstanced at present that I am seldom at this part of the town at an hour when I am likely to meet you. Even yesterday,3 —a day generally at my disposal, I was obliged to leave home immediately after breakfast, and I did not return till this evening. In about a fortnight my family will return from Ramsgate when I shall live more like a rational being. I shall then hope to see you both at your house and at mine.
I have read the letters written by you and Laicus (for the first time) with very great interest. All that can be said on the subject has, I think, been ably said on both sides. My opinion coincided with yours before I read your letters and it is now very much strengthened by the facts and reasoning which you have brought forward. I quite rejoice that your time is so usefully employed.
Yrs. very truly

[2 ]Christianity in India.—Letters between Laicus and An East India Properietor as they appeared in the Times Newspaper in the months of August, September and October, 1813, London, Rivington, n.d., 102 pp. In Trower’s copy (now in the possession of Dr Bonar) ‘Hutches Trower Esq.’ is written on the title-page after ‘An East India Proprietor’; the Editors of the Letters to Trower assign to him, on the basis of his family papers, both the authorship of the ‘East India Proprietor’s’ letters and the editorship of the pamphlet as a whole. In these letters he deprecates attempts at the conversion of the Hindoos, which he considers impossible as well as inexpedient.
