Mr. Davies3 mentioned to me the project of a review, wherein might be freely discussed those principles of reform which are so much out of favour with our other reviews. Of Mr. Mill’s talents for managing such a concern no one has a higher opinion than myself, and I should be glad to contribute by my subscription towards such an undertaking.1
I am Dear Sir Yours very truly

[1 ]‘The need of a Radical organ to make head against the Edinburgh and Quarterly (then in the period of their greatest reputation and influence), had been a topic of conversation between him [James Mill] and Mr. Bentham many years earlier [before the foundation of the Westminster Review in 1824], and it had been a part of their Château en Espagne that my father should be the editor; but the idea had never assumed any practical shape.’ (J. S. Mill, Autobiography, p. 91.)
