mill to ricardo1
You recollect that when I rummaged for my copy of your letter to Perceval on the Economical currency,2 I was unsuccessful.—I found it in a snug concealment on replacing my papers yesterday after the disturbance they had undergone to make way for the workmen. There was however an envelope to the copy, which had on it a few words, and that I cannot find.
I cannot enter upon the important topics on which I should like to converse with you—because I have neither time nor room. You who have both ought to send me a long letter.
East India House 24th. [August] 18193 .
