ricardo to murray2
Gatcomb Park Minchinhampton 18 Novr. 1818
Your note dated the 10th. was yesterday forwarded to me from Brook Street. I have not looked at my book3 since it was published and perhaps in reading it now I may discover some passages which I may wish to alter, but I am so bad a writer that I fear more to do harm than good by attempting any different arrangement, therefore I believe that I shall very soon be prepared for a second edition.
I am Dear Sir Your obed. Serv.
If Mr. Malthus is going to publish1 I submit to you whether I should not wait to see his book, as I know that I shall be attacked in it.
[2 ]Addressed: ‘John Murray Esqr. / Albermale Street / London’.
[3 ]Principles of Political Economy.
[1 ]The Monthly Literary Advertiser of 10 Nov. 1818 announced as ‘in the Press,’ to be published by Murray, Malthus’s Principles of Political Economy Considered, with a View to their Practical Application, and the second edition of Ricardo’s Principles. The former did not in fact go to press till a year later; cp. below, p. 370.
