ricardo to murray2
Gatcomb Park, Minchinhampton 2d. Feby. 1816
All the proofs have been returned by yesterday’s coach to Mr. Davison,3 so that I hope no further delay will take place in the publication of the pamphlet. For the title page I have referred him to you fearing that in my hurry I might not copy it exactly according to the advertisement.4
Have the goodness to enquire whether Mr. Davison has received the parcel.
It would give me great concern if you should be a loser by this publication, and you would much relieve my mind, if, in case of loss, you would allow me to bear the charge, particularly as the number of copies I shall want for my friends is, under any circumstances, unreasonably large. The deficiency will probably not be very great, but whatever it may be you must allow me to pay it. I shall be in London on tuesday. I subjoin a list of those to whom I wish copies sent.
I am Dear Sir Your obed. Servant
What an unconscionable number!
